The Line: Baltimore Orioles +199 / New York Yankees -215 --- Over/Under: 9.5
The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The New York Yankees look for another victory after winning nine of their last 14 games. The Yankees have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The New York Yankees have won 15 of their last 18 games when scoring more than two runs. Giancarlo Stanton leads the Yankees with 94 hits and 52 RBI while Aaron Judge and Didi Gregorius have combined for 175 hits and 108 RBI. Masahiro Tanaka gets the ball, and he is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. Tanaka is 3-3 with a 3.90 ERA and 71 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles could use a victory here after losing 14 of their last 16 games. The Orioles have allowed 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 13 games. The Baltimore Orioles have lost 15 of their last 18 games when allowing more than two runs. Offensively, Manny Machado leads the Orioles with 107 hits and 60 RBI while Adam Jones and Trey Mancini have combined for 169 hits and 57 RBI. Andrew Cashner gets the ball, and he is 2-9 with a 4.39 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Cashner is 2-2 with a 2.25 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 6-0 in their last 6 Tuesday games, 7-1 in Tanakas last 8 road starts and 48-23 in Tanakas last 71 starts. The Orioles are 15-36 in their last 51 home games, 0-4 in Cashners last 4 home starts and 1-6 in Cashners last 7 starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore, 11-5 in the last 16 meetings and 2-5 in Tanakas last 7 starts vs. Orioles.
There's some value with the Orioles and the big plus money considering Tanaka hasn't pitched in a month due to a hamstring injury. But then you look at how the Baltimore Orioles have played this season, the fact fans aren't showing up, players don't seem to care much and the pitching staff gets rocked night in and night out. There's just no backing the Orioles regardless of the situation. Rusty Tanaka or not, the Yanks offense is good enough to get the job done here. I'll also take the RL to add actual value to the bet.
