Pitching Edge – Baltimore Orioles (-103)
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Orioles will counter with Chris Tillman. He picked up his 13th win over the weekend, a thrilling 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Tillman has been sharp this month of July, lowering his ERA from 3.55 to 3.29. Tillman will fancy his chances of sustaining that terrific form today as he has fared extremely well against the American League East this year. He’s 6-0 in starts against AL East teams this season. In fact, the Orioles are unbeaten in the nine games that Tillman has started against their division rivals this year.
Batting Edge – Baltimore Orioles (-103)
There’s no question that the Baltimore Orioles hold the advantage in the batting department for tonight’s ballgame. The Orioles lead the majors in homers (142) this season. The O’s are also third in the American League in batting average (.267) and on-base percentage (.328) this campaign. Five Baltimore players have hit at least 15 homers this season, namely: Mark Trumbo (28), Chris Davis (22), Manny Machado (19), Adam Jones (17) and Jonathan Schoop (16).
Compare that to the offensively challenged Yankees who have scored just 393 runs this season, ninth-lowest in the entire majors. One guy who needs to step up for the Bronx Bombers is Alex Rodriguez. He is 7-of-19 in his career against Chris Tillman with five homers and 10 RBIs.
Writer’s Prediction: Baltimore (-103) wins, 5-2.
