The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will match up on the MLB diamond Monday to begin their series.

New York is coming out of a rivalry series versus the Red Sox. The Yankees won the first three games of that set 4-2, 9-2 and 6-4. In the Sunday finale, the Yankees completed the sweep with an 7-4 win.

For Monday’s game, New York will go with Masahiro Tanaka in the start. Tanaka is 7-6 with a 4.78 ERA and 106 Ks this year.

Over on the Orioles’ side, they just played the Blue Jays this week. Baltimore dropped the first pair in that set, but won Saturday. In the Sunday finale, the Orioles eked out a 6-5 win.

It looks like Gabriel Ynoa will make the start for the Orioles on Monday. Over his 1-6 record this year, Ynoa has a 5.55 ERA with 45 Ks.

The Yankees are 6-2 in their last eight Monday games and 36-16 in their last 52 in game one of a series. The over is 9-1 in the Yankees’ last 10 road games versus a team with a home winning percentage of less than .400 and 43-13-2 in their last 58 road games.

Meanwhile, the Orioles are 8-22 in their last 30 Monday games and 15-54 in their last 69 in game one of a series. The over is 4-0-1 in Baltimore’s last five in game one of a series and the under is 16-6-3 in their last 25 Monday games.

New York got some mojo back in the weekend series against the Sox, but they’re still going to have to answer some rotation questions as the season draws nearer to a close.

Baltimore has their own rotation problems, and Ynoa will be basically a filler here. I’m going New York in the opener.
