Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees Preview and Predictions 08-14-2019 in MLB
The Baltimore Orioles will have one final chance to end a miserable slide against the New York Yankees when the American League East foes finish a four-game series in Yankee Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. New York's 8-3 win Tuesday gave it 15 consecutive wins over the last-place Orioles - six in the past nine days - and a 16-2 advantage in the season series.

Baltimore kept Gleyber Torres in the park Tuesday after the star second baseman had launched 13 home runs against the Orioles on the year, but D.J. LeMahieu went deep and Gio Urshela stayed hot with three hits and an RBI for the Yankees, who have won 13 of their last 15. Urshela has reached safely in 19 straight games in which he's had a plate appearance and he is batting .462 over that stretch with nine home runs and 19 RBIs. He is 1-for-3 with two RBIs versus Dylan Bundy, who will try to slow down the Bronx Bombers when he starts the finale for Baltimore. New York counters with veteran lefty J.A. Happ as it looks to move 40 games over .500.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Dylan Bundy (5-12, 5.04 ERA) vs. Yankees LH J.A. Happ (9-7, 5.48)
Since he gave up seven runs in only one inning of a disastrous start against Tampa Bay on July 12, Bundy has posted a 4.03 ERA over a span of four starts. He has just one win to show for the improved stretch and was saddled with the loss against Houston on Friday after yielding two runs and fanning six over six innings. Aaron Judge has three home runs in 15 at-bats against the 26-year-old Bundy while Torres is 1-for-5 with a double.
Happ owns only one quality start over a span of nine outings after giving up six runs in five frames at Toronto on Friday. His ERA has soared almost a run in that span and the Northwestern product has served up nine home runs over his last five starts. Happ has been knocked around in four starts against the Orioles this year to the tune of a 7.79 ERA and he will need to be careful against Renato Nunez and Hanser Alberto, who are a combined 14-for-26 with five home runs and three doubles versus the lefty.
1. The Yankees activated RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list amid a flurry of roster moves.
2. LeMahieu's blast Tuesday was New York's 60th against Baltimore this year, the most for one team against another opponent in a single season.
3. Nunez snapped a 15-game homerless streak with his 26th of the year in Tuesday's loss.
