The Orioles are set to do battle with their longtime rival, the New York Yankees, as 3 more division games are on tap, starting tonight at 7:05pm.
The Yankees (25-28) are coming into Camden Yards 6.5 games out of first place, but more importantly for them, they are 12-16 on the road, with a -30 run differential. These are not the numbers they want to look at considering they are facing an Orioles team that has scored 25 runs over the past 18 innings. The Yankees had previously visited Camden Yards back on 5/3 through 5/5. The Orioles took that series 2 games to 1.
For the Orioles, Chris Tillman takes the hill tonight, looking for his 8th win of the year. Tilly is putting together a spectacular first half, and over his last 6 games, Chris is 6-0 with a 2.33 ERA over 45. IP.
Nathan Eovaldi (6-2, 3.71 ERA) takes the mound for the Yankees, looking to slow down an Orioles offense that is batting .269 against RHP this season. Eovaldi over his last 7 games, Eovaldi is sporting a 6-0 record with a 2.72 ERA over 43 IP.
Two great right handers facing off against each other tonight, and here’s to hoping the O’s get the upper hand and can continue to further bury the Yankees in the AL East this year.
