American League East Division rivals are set to kick off a three-game series on Tuesday night when the New York Yankees host the Baltimore Orioles. This division is loaded with some great teams, and that will make this matchup extremely important.
Baltimore comes into this series with an overall record of 31-16, and they are sitting in second place in the division. The Orioles have won four of their last five games, and they are coming into this series with a ton of momentum.
New York has rattled off four straight wins heading into this series, and they are now returning home from a long road trip. The Yankees are currently sitting at 29-20, and they are right in the mix for a playoff spot in the AL.
It is the Yankees that are the moneyline favorites at -170 in the series opener, but you could see the Orioles being favored at some point this week.

Bats Are Alive For Baltimore
The Baltimore Orioles are a team with a ton of talent in the everyday lineup, and several players are really swinging the bats well. Baltimore comes into this series hitting .254 as a team, and they have the ability to wear down opposing pitchers.
Ryan Mountcastle leads the team with ten home runs this season, and he has proven that he is a big part of this lineup. The Orioles don’t have as much power as the Yankees, but they can keep the line moving on offense.
Pitching is still something that is a work in progress with the Orioles, even though the team ERA is just over 4.00. Keeping the ball in the ballpark will be a big key against the Yankees in New York.
Yankees’ Pitching Setting the Tone
The New York Yankees have a team ERA of 3.67 this season, and Gerrit Cole is a perfect 5-0. Cole is set to start on Tuesday night, and he is a pitcher that doesn’t need a ton of run support to get a win.
The Yankees will still likely give Cole some run support in this matchup, as they have belted 73 home runs on the year. Aaron Judge leads the way with 13 home runs and 32 RBIs, but Anthony Rizzo is having a huge season as well.
Now that the weather is starting to get nicer in New York, you can expect the offense to continue to do some damage on a daily basis.
Yankees Win the Series
Having Gerrit Cole on the mound is the perfect way to start this series for the Yankees, and it should allow them to get off to a good start. New York will have to find a way to cool down the bats of Baltimore, and Cole will set the tone with a dominant start.
This should be a series in which a ton of runs are scored in games two and three, as both offenses can mash. Baltimore has a slightly better overall lineup than New York, but the Yankees have plenty of success at home.
Expect most of the games to be extremely competitive this week, but the Yankees will find a way to win at least two games.
