There wasn’t a whole lot of reason to feel good about Wade Miley facing the Yankees offense on Thursday. There’s not much more reason to have positive feelings about Jeremy Hellickson doing the same here on Saturday afternoon. That’s how it is, though. You want it to be one way, but it’s the other way.
Maybe there will be a surprise. Tanner Scott is on the way to join the team. He walked 46 batters in 69 innings, which is really a lot, but also struck out 87. You never know what you’re going to get with him. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
Orioles hitters will be going up against Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery, who has a 5.40 second half ERA. Maybe that will be the impetus for the O’s offense to break out in a big way, or something like that.
Apologies for having no lineups in with this game thread, but I have had to set it up early as I will not be around when lineups are released. As you are a resourceful person, I trust you will be able to figure out who is playing yourself.
