Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles 7/19


The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will continue their four game series tonight inside Yankee Stadium with the second game of the series. The Yankees will welcome Nathan Eovaldi back to the starting rotation tonight after a quick trip to the bullpen to presumably get his head screwed back on straight while the Baltimore Orioles will counter with Vance Worley.

Eovaldi returns to the Yankees starting rotation tonight after just two relief appearances in the bullpen. That may not be a good thing for New York because the last time Eovaldi saw Baltimore they tagged him for eight hits and five runs in 5.1 innings. Before heading to the bullpen Eovaldi posted a 9.20 ERA so he almost has to be better now than he has been. Right?

Worley will get a spot start inside Yankee stadium tonight after pitching 1.2 innings of relief on Sunday. Showalter held him back with the intent of pitching him tonight in the Bronx due in large part to his 2.87 ERA this season.


The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. Let’s see what other little tricks and schemes Buck Showalter has up his sleeve for this one. It seems like he is always up to something and it usually is never a good sign for New York. See the fact that he held back Kevin Gausman to start against New York because of his career numbers as just a small example of this. Either way I’m rooting for the Yankees in spite of him. Go Yankees!
