Baltimore vs. NY Yankees,
10/10/2012 19:37 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: -164 NY Yankees
Today's winner is New York over Baltimore.
New York is 51-30 at home this season. Overall, the Yankees have taken 17 of their L23 contests. They took Game 1 of this series and almost had Game 2. The Bronx Bombers are 2nd in the League in RPG (4.96), 8th in BA (.265), 1st in OPS (.790), and 1st in HRs (245). From top to bottom, NY has the most dangerous lineup in baseball. Today, Hiroki Kuroda gets the start. The RH won 4 of his final 5 decisions and boasted a home record of 11-6 with an ERA of 2.72 this season. Baltimore is a solid squad but ranks at or near the bottom half in BA, RPG, and SBs. They have a winning record since losing Betemit and Markakis but are missing the pair right now. Miguel Gonzalez takes the bump. The RH is 9-4 with a 3.25 ERA on the season. The Orioles are 29-59 their L88 games played at the Yankees while the Yankees are 39-19 their L58 games played at home. Take New York. Thank you.
