Yanks Have Been Bombing in Series Finales

A soggy night in Baltimore last night caused the Yanks-O’s series finale to be postponed until this afternoon, further exaggerating the anxiety currently being felt by fans of the Orange Birds. Baltimore sits one game back of the final wild-card spot and a tough stretch of contests makes tonight something of a must-win game for the O’s postseason hopes.

SHARK BITES
  • The Yankees are 6-17 SU in their last 23 games when closing out a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Orioles’ last 8 games with Kevin Gausman as the starting pitcher.
  • The Yankees are 4-1 SU and on the runline in their last 5 games against the Orioles.

Helping the cause today it will be O’s ace Kevin Gausman (10-9, 4.79 ERA) taking the hill looking for a third straight clean sheet. While he’s had a lot of trouble against the Yankees with an 8.38 ERA in four starts this year, he’s been Baltimore’s best pitcher since the all-star break, posting a 5-2 record in 10 appearances.

Sonny Gray (8-9, 3.36 ERA) will go for the Yankees to make his first start against the O’s this season. The former A is coming off his worst game in pinstripes but will be a rebound candidate this afternoon as he’s posted his best numbers this season under the sun with a 2.41 ERA and a 5-1 record during the day.
