The Yankees took two out of three games against the Chicago White Sox, giving them their seventh series win in eight chances. Today, the Yankees will welcome the Orioles to Bronx for the first time this season. The Yankees took two of three games in Baltimore last week. Robinson Cano has been baseball’s hottest hitter, hitting five home runs this past week with a batting average over .500.

This series will feature two repeat pitching match-ups from last week, both of which were wins for the Yankees. The Orioles swept the Red Sox though this weekend, so they are playing much better. I’d like to see the Yankees sweep them, but two out of three will be just fine.

The Yankees were 7-2 at home against the Orioles last year, 13-5 overall. They are 2-1 against the Orioles this season.
