The Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees face each other on Sunday with the division lead at stake. Get odds for this important game at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Yankees seem as though they were on top of the division forever, but my how things have changed. The Yankees lost yesterday to the Orioles 5-4 to make it 7 losses in 11 games and are now tied with the Orioles for the division lead. There has not been enough pitching and certainly not enough offense for the Yankees during the stretch. They will turn to Freddy Garcia on the mound this afternoon whom will be looking to improve on his last three times out games where he has allowed 12 runs in 14 innings.
Baltimore’s again tied with the Yankees on top of the division and will be looking to make a quantum leap and take over first place this afternoon. Joe Saunders was solid for them on the mound yesterday to earn the win. This afternoon in this all-important game the Orioles will turn to left-hander Zach Britton who is on a hot streak. Britton has won 4 straight decisions and has only allowed 3 runs in 28 innings pitched during that span.
It is a lot to ask to think that Baltimore will win three of four in the series. They have such a distinct pitching advantage though that we will take them as a moneyline favorite at best sports books.
