New York Yankees -220 / Baltimore Orioles +200 O/U: 8.5
NOTE: This game has been rained out (just like Monday's game was) and will be made up on Monday, August 12 as part of a separate-admission doubleheader.
The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees will pick up their AL East MLB series again on Tuesday.
In the Monday opener, we had a lengthy rain delay that ultimately cancelled the game. The makeup will be on Wednesday in a single-game admission doubleheader. If we get any pitching changes in this one as the teams shuffle their rotations, we’ll update accordingly.
For Tuesday’s game, the O’s will be bringing out Andrew Cashner for the start. In his 42.1 innings and 4-1 record this year, Cashner has a 4.25 ERA with 33 Ks and 16 walks.
Tops on the O’s offense so far this season is Trey Mancini, with 47 hits, 26 runs, seven homers and 16 RBI. Jonathan Villar is also playing pretty well for Baltimore on 43 hits, 24 runs and 16 RBI.
Over on the Yankees’ side, they’re going with JA Happ on Tuesday. Across 43.1 innings and a 2-3 mark so far, Happ has a 4.36 ERA with 34 Ks and 12 walks.
Leading the Yanks offense this year is DJ LeMahieu, with 45 hits, 22 runs, two homers and 21 RBI to his credit. Gleyber Torres isn’t too far behind on 42 hits with 19 runs, five homers and 17 RBI.
The Orioles are 17-37 in their last 54 Tuesday games and 21-50 in their last 71 in game two of a series. Baltimore is 4-0 in Cashner’s last four Tuesday starts and 5-2 in his last seven starts.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 21-8 in their last 29 Tuesday games and 4-1 in Happ’s last five starts. New York is 7-3 in Happ’s last 10 starts versus the AL East and 5-0 in his last five starts with five days’ rest.
Cashner has had a couple of bad outings this year (like his four earned in 4.0 innings against the Sox May 1), but on the whole he’s been pretty solid and has two quality starts in his last three tries.
As for Happ, he’s got a few bad outings as well, but similarly he’s been reliable overall.
Granted, the Yankees are the better team here and will likely win the game, but a value pick on the O’s with Cashner on the mound doesn’t seem like a bad play considering the potential payoff.
