The Orioles hit the road to take on the New York Yankees. Baltimore has been one of the laughing stocks of the league while the Yankees have heated up at the right time. New York used a 13-game win streak to take over the AL Wild Card lead. The Yankees are currently 1.5 games ahead of second-place Boston but they’re three ahead on the loss column.
Can Cortes lead the Yankees to a victory or will Baltimore pull off the massive road upset? Find out below as cover this matchup.
The Baltimore Orioles have been out of playoff contention for a few months. Baltimore has struggled to keep up in a loaded AL East that features a few legit contenders in New York, Tampa Bay, and Boston. All the Orioles can do now is try to play spoiler down the stretch.
The Orioles offense ranks second-last in the AL in runs (542). Baltimore’s offense is led by Cedric Mullens. Mullens is hitting an impressive .306 with 24 homers and 25 stolen bases. Ryan Mountcastle has played well with 25 homers and 74 RBIs.
The Orioles have allowed the most runs in the entire league. On the mound for the Orioles is John Means. Means is 5-6 with a 3.46 ERA this season. Means has been one of the few bright spots for Baltimore this year but he hasn’t received run support.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are rolling despite going through an uncharacteristic four-game losing streak recently. New York’s pitching has been stellar this season and their offense is starting to perform better. Starters Gerrit Cole, Jordan Montgomery, Nestor Cortes, and Corey Kluber have pitched well.
The offense is led by superstar Aaron Judge. Judge is hitting .299 with 30 homers and 75 RBIs. Giancarlo Stanton has woken up as of late as he now has 25 homers and 71 RBIs and is hitting .272. The Yankees will get Gleyber Torres back soon which will certainly bolster their offense
On the mound for the Yankees is Nestor Cortes Jr. Cortes is 2-2 with a 2.77 ERA this season in 61.2 innings. The lefty has allowed only 48 hits this season.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: Yankees RL
The Yankees should win this game by more than a pair of runs. Look for Cortes to have a strong outing. John Means has pitched well this season but I expect the Yankees to tag him. Take the Yankees on the run line as the money line is too lopsided.
