NOTE: This game has been rained out and will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.
The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees will match up to kick off their MLB series on Monday.
The Orioles are coming off a weekend set versus the Angels. Baltimore lost the first two of those games 8-3 and 7-2, then on Sunday the O's got one 5-1.
For the Monday game, the Orioles will be bringing out David Hess in the start. Over his 1-4 record and 5.50 ERA the right-handed Hess has 27 strikeouts.
Over on the Yankees’ side, they just finished up against the Rays. New York took game one 4-3 then fell 7-2 on Saturday. In the Sunday rubber match, it took the Yankees offense a little while to get going but they pulled out five runs in the last two innings for a 7-1 win.
On Monday, New York will be sending out Jonathan Loasiga for the start. In a 1-1 record with a 4.50 ERA, Loasiga has 13 Ks to his name.
The Orioles are 66-160 in their last 225 overall and 29-86 in their last 115 road games. Baltimore is 6-20 in Hess’ last 26 starts and 3-15 in his last 18 on grass.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 7-1 in their last eight versus the AL East and 6-2 in their last eight overall. New York is 0-4 in Loaisiga’s last four starts and 86-46 in their last 128 home games.
This should be a pretty interesting matchup pitching-wise. Both the se guys have been all over the place this year.
Hess last got a win back on April 1, but is just 0-4 with a 7.27 ERA since then. As for Loasiga, he did okay his last time up, but the Yanks need him to be in control here.
I’m going to take the Yankees here.
