Yankees extend win streak to six; faves Sunday vs. O's
The New York Yankees extended their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.
Any $100 bettor would be up $548.59 if they had wagered on each game of the streak.
The Bronx Bombers have a pair of shortstops on the mend. Eduardo Nunez returned to the lineup Saturday after missing two months of action with a strained left oblique and All-Star SS Derek Jeter (ankle) began a rehab assignment in the minors Saturday night.
The Yankees are -137 in the finale of a three-game set with the O’s on Sunday and will send Hiroki Kuroda (7-6, 2.95) to the hill. Baltimore will counter with Jason Hammel (7-5, 5.19).
The Orioles are 0-6 in Hammel’s last six starts and only 1-7 in their last eight road games.
