The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees meet Monday in game two of an MLB doubleheader at Yankee Stadium.

The Baltimore Orioles could use a win after losing nine of their last 13 games. The Orioles have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Baltimore Orioles have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Jonathan Villar leads the Orioles with 124 hits and 52 RBI while Trey Mancini and Hanser Alberto have combined for 235 hits and 100 RBI. Gabriel Ynoa gets the ball, and he is 1-6 with a 5.57 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. Ynoa is 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.

The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The Yankees have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 13 of their last 16 games. The New York Yankees have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 145 hits and 80 RBI while Gleyber Torres and Gio Urshela have combined for 211 hits and 123 RBI. The New York Yankees didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.

The Orioles are 31-65 in their last 96 during game 2 of a series, 32-76 in their last 108 vs. American League East and 8-23 in their last 31 Monday games. The Yankees are 12-3 in their last 15 during game 2 of a series, 42-14 in their last 56 vs. American League East and 68-31 in their last 99 overall. The Orioles are 14-37 in the last 51 meetings and the over is 42-10-1 in the last 53 meetings. The over is 16-5 in Yankees last 21 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Orioles last 6 overall.

Ynoa has allowed six hits and four earned runs in his last 6.2 innings, and he just faced this Yankees lineup last week. The New York Yankees have destroyed the Orioles this season, which includes 10 straight wins and winning those games by an average of 4.9 runs per game. The Baltimore Orioles should have a little pep in their step after a monster comeback yesterday against the Houston Astros, but this is still a garbage team that has zero pitching and gives up crooked numbers way too easily. I don't care who the Yankees throw out for a pitcher, they should sweep this doubleheader. 

Pick:
