PREDICTION: BALTIMORE , NY YANKEES
Oddsmakers currently have the BALTIMORE listed as 200 point favorites versus the NY YANKEES, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.5.
The New York Yankees get Masahiro Tanaka back from the 10-day disabled list when they play the third game of a four-game series at the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday. Tanaka, who has won five straight decisions, has been sidelined for over a month with right and left hamstring strains.
He threw 69 pitches over five frames in a rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and the Yankees hope he gets at least that far after they split a doubleheader to begin the series Monday. Brett Gardner was 4-for-6 with a home run, three RBIs and three runs scored to lead the Yankees to a 10-2 win in the nightcap. Danny Valencia’s three-run shot in the sixth inning lifted the Orioles to a 5-4 victory in the opener, snapping their six-game losing streak. Andrew Cashner gets the start opposite Tanaka on Tuesday as he seeks his first victory since May 21.

Tanaka was injured in a start at the New York Mets on June 8 when he allowed one run and struck out eight across five innings. He lost to the Orioles on April 5 despite posting a quality start before getting the win after giving up four runs in 5 1/3 frames in a rematch June 2. Adam Jones is 11-for-27 with three home runs against Tanaka, who has a 5.25 ERA in four career starts at Camden Yards.
Cashner is 0-4 over his last seven turns but he has five quality starts in that span, including six innings of three-run ball (two earned) in a loss at Minnesota on Thursday. The 31-year-old is 0-5 with a 4.70 ERA in nine home starts. Aaron Hicks is 4-for-6 with two doubles against Cashner, who owns a 2.25 ERA in five career matchups with the Yankees.
