Michael King went 4.2 innings and allowed 2 earned runs on Wednesday. Alrodis Chapman blew the save, but the Yankees walked it off.
Domingo German has been ok this year. He is 4-4 with a 4.17 ERA. His last start came against the Athletics on Saturday where he went 4 innings and allowed 4 earned 4 runs. The Yankees lost this game 7-5.
Pitching for this team has been good this year. They are ranked 9th with a 3.60 ERA. Gerrit Cole is the ace of this team and has had another very strong season.
The offense has not been as good as some thought it would be. They are 22nd scoring 4 runs per game.
Aaron Judge has been their best and most consistent hitter this year.
New York has hit 95 home runs which is 10th best in the league.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox have already had success against the Yankees this year and I expect that to continue on Friday.
The Red Sox have struggled over their last few games, but I look for them to get back on track.
German is the better pitcher than Perez, but I am not confident he can contain the Red Sox. I believe Boston will be able to do enough against him and Perez will pitch a solid game. This has the chance to be a very good games.
I will take the Red Sox at home as +110 dogs.
