On Monday July 3rd in New York, a 4-game series between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees gets underway. Both of these organizations, which are currently pursuing the Tampa Bay Rays, are in 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the AL East.
Although they remain 6.5 games away from 1st place, the Orioles began this series with a little lead over the Yankees. They have dropped 4 consecutive games, which is their worst losing run of this season, before their Sunday showdown versus the Twins. They haven’t scored in one or more of those games recently, which has contributed to their ongoing downturn.
On Monday evening versus the Yankees, the Orioles will start right-hander Tyler Wells. Over 15 starts this year, Wells is 6-4 with 6 quality starts. Having an ERA of 3.21 across 92.2 innings pitched, Wells has only given up 62 hits. Wells boasts an excellent 0.88 WHIP and a 9.2 K/9 rate.
Conversely, the Yankees have struggled to keep up with the top teams in the AL East. At just 46 wins so far this season, their pace simply isn’t good enough to take down Tampa Bay in their division – meaning any slip up could prove disastrous and make these next few weeks particularly crucial for them.
Without Aaron Judge in the center of the lineup, the New York Yankees have discovered a way to prevail. The Yankees are only 16-18 overall and 11-12 since Judge’s latest foot ailment sent him on the Injury List. The Yankees, on the other hand, are currently finding their groove after going 7-3 in their past 10 matches coming into Sunday’s series showdown against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Following his historical perfect game versus Oakland this past Wednesday, the Yankees will turn to right-hander Domingo German on Monday evening. German has made 15 starts this year, going 5-5 with a 4.54 ERA and 5 solid outings. This year, in 81.1 innings, he has given up 60 hits. German’s WHIP is a respectable 1.05. He is sporting a K/9 rate of 8.6.
