LIVE Yankees vs Orioles score here on oure site. After a big win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, the New York Yankees head to Baltimore, thanks mostly to a seven-run sixth inning. New York will be playing a series in as many weeks against the Orioles for the second time, with the first of a four-game set on Monday night.
Last Monday through Wednesday, Yankees vs Orioles were supposed to play a three-game series in New York but rained out the first two games. So on May 15, they played a doubleheader swept by the Yankees. On Aug. 12, the other game will be made up.
The Yankees have been on a roll lately and their second series win over Tampa Bay over the past two weekends was completed by Sunday’s 13-5 victory over the Rays. New York took in Florida two out of three last weekend and did it in New York this weekend.
The big hit in the seven-run inning came as Thairo Estrada’s pinch hitter, battling for Gio Urshela, lined a three-run double for an 11-5 lead. When fouling off a pitch earlier, Urshela had been hit in the groin, and manager Aaron Boone told the media that he had some trouble running.
But when players go down, people just keep stepping up for the Yankees, something that has happened a lot in this season full of injury.
Aaron Hicks hit his season’s first homer and loved his team’s views.
“It just proves our team’s fight,” Hicks told MLB.com. “We’re really doing’ next man up,’ and guys are performing and doing what they need to do to help this team win.”
J.A. Happ will start Monday for New York. He’s 3-3 with an overall 4.44 ERA in 2019 but has given up nine runs in 13 2/3 innings in three starts this season versus Baltimore and is 1-1 versus this year’s Orioles.
Happ is 8-7 in his career with a record of 3.29 in 23 games, 22 of which started.
Andrew Cashner starts with the Orioles and has a 4-2 record along with a 4.10 ERA. This is going to be his third start versus New York this season. He gave up two runs on four hits last week and took the loss in one of the doubleheader games.
Cashner is 2-5 with a 3.90 ERA in nine games against the Yankees for his career, it all starts.
Baltimore is coming off a road trip where four of five games have been dropped. The Orioles lost that New York doubleheader and then Cleveland took two out of three of them, capped on Sunday afternoon by a 10-0 rout.
As Cleveland starter Shane Bieber went the distance, the Orioles struck out 15 times and got only five hits. Baltimore had only one hit the day before, a Trey Mancini homer, so the Orioles finished with only one run in the final two games.
“This game has been lopsided from the beginning,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde told The Baltimore Sun. “I thought we were in yesterday (a 4-1 loss), we won the day before, we swung the bat good the first day. Today, we just got beat.” Starter Yefry Ramirez lasted just 3 1/3 innings and was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk after the game.
