According to STATS

Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees

  1. The Yankees are 20-5 in their last 25 home games against the Orioles, including five wins in six games this season. The Orioles' last series win in the Bronx was in March 2019, when they opened the season by beating the Yankees in two out of three games.
  2. Orioles starting pitchers allowed only one run, nine hits and two walks in 28.2 innings during the team's three-game winning streak last week (September 21-23), but Baltimore's starters have given up 17 runs, 28 hits and 11 walks over 22.1 innings in the team's six games since then.
  3. The Orioles have won three of Jordan Lyles' five starts against the Yankees this season. Lyles is 1-2 with a 4.71 ERA in those five games. The only other pitchers with five starts versus the Yankees this season are Tampa Bay's Corey Kluber and Boston's Nick Pivetta.
  4. The Yankees have a 56-22 record in home games this season. Their high for wins in one season at the current Yankee Stadium is 57, a mark set in 2009 (the year the "new" Stadium opened)
  5. Aaron Judge has hit 35 home runs in the 78 games he's played against the Orioles over the last six seasons (including nine homers in 15 games this year). That's the most home runs by any MLB player against one team since 2017 (Second: Mike Trout vs. SEA, 33).
  6. The Yankees have won all of Domingo German's six starts at Yankee Stadium this year, since he made his home debut on August 1st. The Yankees are 10-9 in home games started by any pitcher other than German since the beginning of August.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 9/30/2022 thru 10/2/2022

Aaron Judge will get one more set of at-bats in his attempt at hitting his 62nd homer in front of his home fans Sunday afternoon when the New York Yankees host the Baltimore Orioles. Rain is forecasted, however, and the game will not be made up if there is a rainout.

Judge tied Roger Maris for the AL record Wednesday night in Toronto and in his first two games since matching the record, he is 1-for-4 with four walks.

After walking twice and being hit by a pitch on Saturday, Judge has been on base in 29 straight games. It is the second-longest on-base streak of his career.

Judge is batting .411 (39-for-95) during that streak. Since getting his 60th homer on Sept. 20 against Pittsburgh, Judge has reached in 25 of 45 plate appearances (seven hits, 17 walks and one hit by pitch), including a leadoff free pass in the seventh on Saturday.

While the Orioles seemed to pitch carefully to Judge, the Yankees (97-60) cruised to an 8-0 win Saturday. Giancarlo Stanton and Kyle Higashioka homered, while Gleyber Torres and Josh Donaldson drove in two runs apiece as the Yankees totaled 14 hits.

"There's no bigger stage and there's no tougher place to do it," Stanton said. "He's at the top of the top and he's made it look easy."

The next time Judge and the Yankees will appear in front of their fans will be for Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Oct. 11.

Baltimore (81-77) is 6-12 against the Yankees this year and needs one win to clinch its first winning season since 2016.

After going from 110 losses to being eliminated from the AL wild-card race late Friday night, the Orioles mustered three hits, were blanked for the 11th time this season and struck out 14 times.

"It was very disappointing, but I'm proud of the way our team has played this year, how we exceeded expectations. We stayed in it until October 1," Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde said. "I wanted to be in the playoffs and I wanted our guys to experience those things, too. But we gave it a good run."

Kyle Bradish (4-7, 5.11 ERA) concludes his rookie season for Baltimore and attempts to rebound from one of his shortest starts. After allowing two hits and striking out 10 in 8 2/3 innings Sept. 22 against Houston, Bradish was tagged for seven runs on four hits in 2 1/3 innings Tuesday in Boston for his second-shortest career start.

Bradish's only previous start against the Yankees was May 16 in Baltimore when he took the loss and allowed four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings. Judge did not face Bradish or play in that game when the right-hander allowed a homer to Jose Trevino.

The Yankees announced after Saturday's game that Chi Chi Gonzalez will make the start in place of Luis Severino, who will start in Texas.

Gonzalez (0-1, 6.87) signed a minor league deal with the Yankees on Aug. 30, and he posted a 3.63 ERA in five starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre. Before joining the Yankees, Gonzalez made four appearances with Milwaukee and two with Minnesota this season.

Gonzalez, who owns a 9-24 lifetime record, is making his 52nd career start and 68th career appearance. He has never faced the Orioles.
