Are Orioles and Yankees going to eclipse total? MLB Predictions 9/16/17

Almost three months ago, Andujar gave Yankees fans the most tantalizing of teases, driving in four runs to set a club record in a major-league debut and going 3-for-4 with a double against the White Sox on June 28. Since 1961, no team has scored that many runs against any opponent, and that's the most the Orioles have allowed in any season against an opponent.

Pitching for Baltimore will be Jeremy Hellickson, while NY turns to Jordan Montgomery.

Welington Castillo hit a two-run homer as Baltimore (72-76) lost for the eighth time in nine games since September 5 and fell to 6-11 against the Yankees.

Ubaldo Jimenez (5-10, 6.75 ERA) makes his 24th start and 30th appearance of the season.

"It's been tough. We were right in the thick of things a few weeks ago and yeah, it's been frustrating", Hellickson said.

After earning their first two runs on a first inning sacrifice fly from Didi Gregorius and a fourth-inning error by Davis, the Orioles' first baseman, that allowed Chase Headley to score from second, the Yankees grabbed the lead on Gregorius' 22nd home run of the year, a fifth inning, two-run shot to the right-field power alley that also scored Aaron Judge.

"It hurt a lot. I'm ready", Severino said. "He's went through an injury-filled couple of years, but when he's been on the field and healthy he's played really well". I'm kind of fighting myself, fighting my delivery. "I think sometimes that's the perspective people get is you just have surgery and it fixes it".

While the Orioles have slumped badly, their offense has led the way.

Just three games separate these two rivals in the National League Central.

As the Orioles spent most of the second half bunched with a group of up to eight teams fighting for the second wild-card spot, Showalter has maintained the Orioles couldn't be preoccupied with the standings, that they were their own biggest competition.

The Orioles (72-76) enter Saturday four games below.500, and they would have been long removed from the playoff mix had just one contender around them truly played like a playoff team. It's just a bad combination. "You go back through it like we do after every game, there's a lot of bad pitches being made with some stuff that isn't up to we're capable of taking out there". The Orioles set a franchise record for runs allowed to an opponent since moving from St. Louis following the 1953 season. Brett Gardner brought 142 hits, 90 runs, 20 homers and 58 RBI into the weekend; Didi Gregorius had 140 hits, 65 runs, 22 homers and 77 RBI. "Get the first hit and carry it into a couple more good ABs and putting a good swing on a good pitch to hit that last [one]".

Joey Rickard started in left and Tim Beckham was the designated hitter for the first time this season. The Orioles will purchase the contract of LHP Tanner Scott from Double-A Bowie and add him to the active roster Sunday. The Cardinals, on the other hand, have won eight of their last 10 games to get back into postseason contention.
