Baltimore Orioles vs NY Yankees Prediction

It would be nice to know who the Baltimore Orioles are throwing out there on the mound, but I’m probably going to lean toward the Yankees regardless. The Yankees are too talented offensively to continue to ride the struggle bus, and a breakthrough is coming sooner than later. Carlos Rodon has also been sharp this season with an ERA under 3, and he’s averaging a little over a strikeout per inning. Quick turnaround, this is a good spot for the Yankees on the road. The price is more than reasonable. Give me the Yankees to get a big AL East victory over the O’s.
