The Yankees continue to dominate the Orioles and will send Gerrit Cole to the mound who has allowed only 1 run in his last 3 starts against them. The Orioles are on a 5 game losing streak, they were able to put 4 runs in the scoreborad on Tuesday but it's going to be tough on this one agaisnt Cole. Take the Yankees for the sweep.
