My free play is on the Bal Orioles at 7:05 Et.
The New York Yankees' playoff hopes have all but faded, as Derek Jeter begins the final home series of his illustrious career as the New York Yankees look to keep alive their slim wild-card hopes in the first of four games against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. they're still showing some fight. The 80-75 Yankees have won four of five after beating Toronto 5-2 on Sunday but they are 4 1/2 games out of a wild-card spot and will need to pass THREE teams to earn one. The Orioles (93-62) had won four straight and 10 of 11 before dropping two of three to Boston over the weekend. They are 2 1/2 games back of the Angels for the AL’s best overall record and will need help from LA (meaning an Angel slump) this final week to catch them.
Baltimore sends Wei-Yin Chen (16-4, 3.58 ERA) to the mound, who is both 8-2 on the road and at home in 2014. He is coming off his FOURTH consecutive victory and NINTH in 10 decisions. The left-hander has posted a 1.45 ERA in his last three appearances and is looking to become the Orioles' first 17-game winner since Mike Mussina went 18-7 in 1999. New York's Michael Pineda is his mound opponent and he’s 0-3 despite a 2.45 ERA over his last four starts, a stretch in which he's received ONE total run of support. Pineda (3-5, 2.15 ERA) hasn't recorded a decision in three career outings against the Orioles while compiling a 2.50 ERA but his teams are 0-3.
Chen has been superb this year for the Orioles, while Pineda continues to pitch in “hard luck.” The Orioles are EASILY the best moneyline team in MLB this season at plus-$3,499, as the Angels own the second-best mark at plus-$2,228. A good part of Baltimore’s winnings have come on the road, where their plus-$2,065 mark is also a MLB-best. No win here for Jeter and the Yanks!
