Gausman, Orioles Have Owned The Yankees

The Baltimore Orioles will look to extend their dominance of the New York Yankees when the AL East rivals kick off a four-game set Monday. The O’s have won nine of the past 11 contests against the Yankees – including going 4-2 in their six meetings so far this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Orioles are 3-8 in their past 11 games at Yankees Stadium.
  • The Yankees are 2-7 in their past nine games within the AL East.
  • The Orioles are 11-2 in their past 13 games against teams with losing records

Kevin Gausman was originally scheduled to take the bump Sunday, but the Orioles opted to push his start back a day to face the Yankees. Gausman has historically fared well against the Bronx Bombers with a 2.22 ERA in 13 appearances – seven of which were starts. In just this season alone, Gausman has a 0.64 ERA in two starts against the Yankees this season.

The Yanks will hope that Ivan Nova can get something going in the second half after a disappointing opening to the year. Nova has allowed 36 runs in his past nine starts and has not pitched into the sixth inning in his past five outings.

Can Fulmer Keep Up His Torrid Pace?

The Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals are trailing the Cleveland Indians in the American League Central division, but a win in Sunday’s contest would put them in a good position to challenge the Tribe as the season passes its midway point.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit.
  • The UNDER is 5-1 in the Tigers' last 6 games.
  • The Royals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Yordano Ventura and Michael Fulmer are slated to get the start for the Royals and Tigers, respectively. Ventura (6-7, 5.15 ERA) has lost each of his last three starts since serving an eight-game suspension. Fulmer (9-2, 2.11) concluded an excellent first half of the season with his seventh victory in his last nine starts against Cleveland on July 6. The 23-year-old rookie is 7-1 with a 0.63 ERA in that span.

The UNDER is paying out for Kansas City backers of late. In the Royals’ last seven games, the UNDER is 5-2.

Mets are Struggling Behind deGrom

The New York Mets haven’t been getting the job done against divisional opponents, but a Sunday matchup with the lowly Philadelphia Phillies could be exactly what the doctor ordered.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 1-5 in their last 6 road games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Phillies' last 5 starts.
  • The Mets are 1-4 in deGroms last 5 road starts.

Jacob deGrom and Zach Eflin are the probable starters for the Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates. deGrom (5-4, 2.61 ERA) has permitted three runs on 16 hits in his last three outings, and he’s 3-0 in his career against the Phils.

Eflin (2-2, 4.08) has recorded back-to-back victories after beginning his career with an 0-2 record.

Putting runs on the board has been the difference maker for the Mets this year. New York is 11-35 when scoring three or fewer runs this season.
