Series Openers Have Been a Joke for the Yanks at Home

Sitting atop a crowded AL East, the Yankees host the Orioles today in the first of a three-game set and they’ll send rookie starter Jordan Montgomery (3-4, 3.67 ERA) to the mound to take on Dylan Bundy (6-4, 2.93). Yankee Stadium has been a bit of a good-luck charm for the Bronx Bombers of late as they’ve won 12 of their last 13 series openers against the Orioles on home turf.

  • The home team is 6-3 SU in the 9 games the Yankees and Orioles have played this season.
  • Manny Machado is questionable to play tonight (wrist).
  • The Orioles are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Slugging along with the best in the American League, the Yankees have been living up to their lofty moniker. The Astros and Rays (really?) are the only teams in baseball that have hit more home runs than the Yanks and they’ve scored an average of 8.5 runs per game over the last two nights.

Baltimore’s starter this evening is having an excellent start in his third season as a pro. Bundy’s allowed exactly two earned runs in all of his last three appearances on the O’s starting bump and has given up just two over his last 12.2 innings pitched against the Yankees.

The trends are heavily in favor of the home team tonight but do not discount what Bundy is capable of doing to the Yanks.
