The MLB brings more action on Friday as the Baltimore Orioles will clash with the New York Yankees at the Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York. This will the first game of a three-game series. The Orioles will start this game with Yefry Ramirez and the Yankees will give the nod with CC Sabathia.
Baltimore Orioles Form
The Orioles did not have a good season so far. To be more specific, they had the worst record in the league and they have been playing bad all year long. Now they have to face the Yankees and their chances to get something out of this game are minimal. However, on the positive side, they were able to pull a win against the Blue Jays on Wednesday with a score of 2-1.
The Orioles have averaged 3.36 runs per game and have allowed 5.83 runs per game on the road this year.
Yefry Ramirez stands at 0-2 with a 7.30 ERA in three games (two starts) against the Yankees.
On the offensive side of the game, the Orioles are placed on the 28th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.82 runs per game, while also being on the 26th spot in hitting at .238 and 14th spot in homers with a total of 179. On the mound, they have been poor as they are placed on the 30th spot in the league in ERA at 5.17, while also being on the 30th spot in WHIP at 1.50 and 28th spot in K’s with 1131.
New York Yankees Form
The Yankees lost the race with the Red Sox for the American League East Division. However, the Yankees are still in the mix for a playoff spot. They battle with the A’s for the top place in wildcard standings and it seems that they can make it. The Yankees have 2.5 games lead. They need to win this game in order to keep the momentum going forward. They also had some good games against the Red Sox as they won the first two games of the series. The Yankees have averaged 5.60 runs per game and have allowed 4.22 runs per game here at Yankee Stadium for the year.
CC Sabathia record stands at 19-11 with a 3.69 ERA in 44 career starts against the O’s.
On the offensive side of the game, the Yankees have been very good as they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league in scoring, putting up 5.14 runs per game, while also being on the 15th spot in hitting at .249 and 1st place in homers with a total of 245 so far. On the mound, they have been very solid so far as they are placed on the 6th spot in the league in ERA at 3.71, while also being on the 6th place in WHIP at 1.23 and 2nd spot in K’s with 1507.
The Orioles are the worst team in the league this season. Although they were able to pull out a win against the Jays, they are still miles away from being a strong team. On the other side, the Yankees are one of the better teams in the league and they need to win this game in order to get a playoff spot. Go for the Yankees in this one.
