The Yankees and Orioles will clash on Thursday in the 3rd game of a 3 game series. The Yankees are trying to keep their head above water in the AL Wild Card race while the Orioles are hoping to avoid finishing as the worst team in baseball this year.
New York Yankees
After winning 13 straight games in the second half of August, the Yankees have fallen apart in September and their playoff chances are now up in the air. As of this writing, the Yankees, Red Sox, and Blue Jays are in a 3-way tie for the 1st and 2nd Wild Card spots in the American League. Just behind them are Seattle, 3 games back, and Oakland, 3.5 games back.
The Yankees have only won 5 games since their 13-game winning streak was snapped on August 28th. They lost 4 straight before getting back in the win column for two straight but followed that up with another 7 game losing skid. .
The Yankees need to take advantage of this series against Baltimore because things don’t get any easier for them after. They’ll close out the season with 3 straight series against playoff contending teams. They’ll travel to Boston for a key series beginning September 24th and then head straight to Toronto for 3 games after that. Then they’ll finish out the year at home to Tampa for 3 games when they will probably be hoping the Rays are in pitcher-resting mode for the postseason.
The Yanks started out this series in good form with a 7-2 win on Tuesday. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that Aaron Judge came back after being removed from Sunday’s game due to dizziness. Judge went 1 for 4 with a home run and a walk.
The Yanks will send Jordan Montgomery to the hill for this one. His last start against the Mets didn’t go well. He gave up 5 earned runs in just 3.1 innings of work. The Yankees have dropped 3 straight with him on the hill. Montgomery, like the rest of the Yankees, had a great August, however, posting a 2.18 ERA for the month.
The Baltimore Orioles are currently the worst team in baseball with a .319 winning percentage. As of this writing, however, they are just .5 games back from Arizona in the race to avoid the basement. On the bright side for the Orioles, the season is almost over.
The Orioles come into this series after giving up 44 runs to the Toronto Blue Jays over a 3 game stretch. That’s not a typo. A double-header on Saturday saw them give up 11 runs in both games. Then just for good measure they gave up 22 to them on Sunday. A 7-2 loss to the Yankees followed on Tuesday. It’s possible the Orioles are playing like a team resigned to the fact that this is a lost season for them.
Former Ole Miss pitcher Chris Ellis will take the hill for this one. He faced the Yankees on September 4th and pitched 5 scoreless innings helping his team to a 4-3 win.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Yankees are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games.
- Orioles have lost 5 of their last 6 games SU.
- Yankees are 5-2 SU in their last 7 road games in Baltimore.
- Orioles are 3-1 with Chris Ellis starting this season.
- Yankees are 0-3 in their last 3 with Jordan Montgomery starting.
Free New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Yankees need this series or their playoff chances are in real doubt. They’ve seen rookie Chris Ellis earlier this month and I feel confident they will have figured him out by the time they face him again here. Meanwhile, the Orioles are playing like they just want the season to end as soon as possible. The Yankees on the moneyline seems like a smart move here.
