The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees will meet up for game one of their doubleheader on Monday.

The Orioles are coming out of a set against the Astros this weekend. Baltimore fell 3-2 Friday and were drilled 23-2 Saturday. In the Sunday finale, Baltimore eked out a great walk-off 8-7 win.

For the Monday game one, the Orioles will bring out Gabriel Ynoa for the start. Ynoa is 1-6 with a 5.57 ERA and 47 Ks this year.

Over on the Yankees’ side, they just finished up against the Blue Jays. New York won Thursday but fell Friday and Saturday 8-2 and 5-4. In the Sunday game, New York squeezed by 1-0.

For Monday’s game one, New York will send out James Paxton to start. Paxton is 7-6 with a 4.40 ERA and 130 Ks this season.

The Orioles are 32-76 in their last 108 versus the AL East and 8-23 in their last 31 Monday games. Baltimore is 15-56 in their last 71 in game one of a series and the over is 2-0-2 in their last four Monday games.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are 7-2 in their last nine Monday games and 38-16 in their last 54 in game one of a series. New York is 60-24 in their last 84 home games after a road trip of a week or more and the over is 3-0-1 in their last four Monday games.

Well, this one is a scramble for both teams as they attempt to cover their rotations for the week. Ynoa put up three earned in 4.2 innings his last time up (against the Yankees). Paxton has two straight wins and shouldn’t have a lot of trouble here. I’ll take New York.
