The New York Yankees are definitely looking like the best team in the league, and it isn’t even close. With 27 wins and only 9 losses, the Yankees are sitting at the top of the standings, and the ones behind them are the Dodgers, but they are still 3 wins away from reaching the Yankees. Just considering how the two teams have been playing recently, it’s safe to say that the Dodgers aren’t getting closer to them anytime soon.
Aaron Boone’s team will try to secure the third victory in their four-game series against the Baltimore Orioles, and although they were really close to losing yesterday’s game, the Yankees will finally pull out their ultimate weapon. They will be sending out Gerrit Cole as their starting pitcher for this game, which is going to put the Baltimore Orioles in a shaky position as they’ve struggled multiple times against him in the past, owning an aggregate .660 OPS against him.
The Baltimore Orioles will try to even up the field with Jordan Lyles as their starting pitcher, making this his 8th start in this season. He is carrying a 4.38 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through seven starts and 39 innings, and although those numbers already might raise some concerns, Lyles’ recent performance should be the main worry. In his last appearance against the Detroit Tigers, he gave up 4 runs on 6 hits, and 3 walks over 5.2 innings.
We know that the Baltimore Orioles are far from being the absolute worst team in the league, but they have been heavily underperforming in most of their games, and going up against Gerrit Cole might not give them a lot of hope. Today, the Orioles will be playing against the odds and they’ll have to play a pristine game if they want to take down the New York Yankees, the team that is currently leading the standings by a lot.
