The Yankees will round off a three-game series against AL East-division rivals the Baltimore Orioles tonight at Oriole Park.  The Yankees lead the series 2-0 after two comfortable wins on Tuesday and Wednesday.  They still control their run to the playoffs by occupying the 2nd and final Wild Card slot.  They'll look to wrap up the series and notch their 4th win in a row tonight.  The Orioles were the first team eliminated from playoff contention and are only aiming to take down a division rival on its path to the postseason.  It's proving to be a hard task as the Orioles have now lost five on the trot. 

Pitching matchup


Jordan Montgomery (5-6, 3.71 ERA) Fifth-year Yankees pitcher Jordan Montgomery is slated to start his 27th game of the season.  He has a 3.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 2021 over 138.1 innings pitched and claimed 137 strikeouts compared to his 46 walks.  Montgomery against the Orioles this season has 18.2 IP in 4 games and has surrendered 22 hits for only eight ERs and has walked five batters and struck out 17 others.


Chris Ellis (1-0, 2.08 ERA) Chris Ellis will take the mound for the Orioles for his 5th start of the season making it his most career starts in a season since his debut in the majors in 2019.  In 2021 he has a 2.08 ERA and 1.13 WHIP.  He played the Yankees earlier this season and pitched five innings giving up a single hit for no ERs and had two strikeouts and three walks.


The Yankees are already in full control of this series with signs of letting up. The Orioles just don't have enough to stop the Bronx Bombers' bats nor enough on their end to outscore them Yankees will sweep the series tonight.
