The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees will continue a four-game series when they square off at Oriole Park on Tuesday night.

Torres on a tear

The Yankees seem well on their way to a third straight season series victory over the Baltimore Orioles, relying heavily on the bats of Gleyber Torres and Gary Sanchez to dominate their American League East rival. New York sets its sights on a sixth straight head-to-head victory and hope to improve to 8-2 against the O’s this year when they meet for the second of four games in Baltimore on Tuesday. Torres and Sanchez combined for three home runs and six RBIs on Monday, doing the bulk of their damage to dig New York out of an early 6-1 hole and send it to a 10-7 win in the series opener. The 22-year-old Torres is 17-for-35 with eight dingers–including three multi-homer performances–and 10 RBIs against the Orioles this season, while the 26-year-old Sanchez is 11-for-34 with eight HRs and 14 RBIs.

Right-hander Domingo German (8-1, 2.50 ERA) is taking the mound for New York on Tuesday. German added to his major league-leading victory total with last Wednesday’s strong performance against Baltimore, allowing one run on six hits and a walk while recording eight strikeouts over seven innings. The 26-year-old has won each of his last five outings and yielded fewer than two runs in half of his eight overall turns.

Pitching problems

Hanser Alberto collected a career-high four hits as part of an inspired effort by the Orioles, who outhit the Yankees 13-11 but could not avoid their ninth straight home loss in the all-time series. Baltimore owns the worst team ERA in the major leagues (5.63) and has been particularly porous recently, giving up at least 10 runs in three of its last five contests. Defense was also a problem on Monday night, especially from outfielder Dwight Smith Jr., who really struggled with two poor throws.

David Hess (1-5, 5.58 ERA) will oppose German on Tuesday. The right-hander has not recorded a quality start since firing 6.1 hitless innings at Toronto on April 1 and has struggled with the long ball since then, giving up a major league-high 14 homers. He dropped his fifth straight decision last Wednesday opposite German after surrendering a career-high four homers in 6.0 innings at New York.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Rio Ruiz (2-for-4) and Jonathan Villar (2-for-6) are the only Orioles with multiple hits against German, who also defeated Baltimore in Camden Yards when he allowed two runs over 6.0 innings on April 7. Torres (22 years, 158 days) on Monday became the youngest player in team history to record five multi-homer performances–four of which have come against the Orioles. New York is 16-5 in its last 21 against right-handed starters, 5-0 in German’s last five stats, 5-0 in his last five road starts, and 13-3 in its last 16 at Baltimore. The Orioles are 15-54 in their last 69 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, 0-4 in Hess’ last four home starts, and 0-5 in the last five meetings between the two teams.

Prediction: New York Yankees

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Baltimore has surrendered 97 home runs – 15 more than any other team. Torres (3-for-7, three homers) and Sanchez (3-for-7, two) have thrived against Hess, who has served up seven home runs in his two starts against the Yankees this season. The over is 20-5-1 in the Yankees’ last 26 on the road and 5-0-1 in German’s last six road starts. It is also 3-1-1 in Hess’ last five starts. Additionally, the over is 37-13-1 in the last 51 meetings between the two teams and 16-5-1 in New York’s last 22 at Baltimore. Look for this one to go over the total.
