The Orioles have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cedric Mullins leads the Orioles with 31 hits and six RBI while Maikel Franco and Freddy Galvis have combined for 40 hits and 22 RBI.

The Yankees are 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series. The Orioles are 58-122 in their last 180 home games and 4-15 in their last 19 during game 2 of a series. The under is 5-2 in Yankees last 7 overall. The under is 7-2-1 in Orioles last 10 overall. The Yankees are 22-5 in the last 27 meetings in Baltimore and 46-15 in the last 61 meetings.
The New York Yankees are the better team, have the better pitcher and should be favored here. However, the Yankees also aren't scoring runs and Corey Kluber hasn't been great through 15 innings, which includes 11 walks. Bruce Zimmermann has his struggles as well, but the Orioles offense has at least shown some life and they're at home. The O's are worth a look with the big plus money here because of how shaky the Yanks look at the moment.
