5/17 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Start of 4 Game Series vs Baltimore

priceFrom Monday through today, the Yankees will not have played a single game. Monday was an off day, Tuesday’s game was postponed after the 6th inning, Wednesday’s game was postponed, and today is an off day. Normally that would be good time to add up Ws while the other team is in an extended delay of off days. Unfortunately the Sox lost the first 2 vs Oakland, but came away with series finale. Today starts a 4 game series against the Orioles, ending teh current homestand.

Price is on the mound, all set to build off of his solid start in Toronto last week. He lasted just 5.1 innings, but the average of velocity at just under 94 was a very encouraging sign. With upcoming starts against the Orioles, Rays and Blue Jays, ample opportunities to bring ERA down from present mark of 4.89.

Kevin Gausman takes the ball for the Orioles, and he is having right now what could be the best season of his career. Gausman has had only one bad start, that was April 1 vs the Twins, giving up 6 ER in 4 innings. In the last seven starts, he has given up more than 2 ER just once… which was more than a month ago on April 11th, giving up 3 ER in 6 innings. His last start was a Houdini act however, the Rays bats collected 11 hits off of him in 7.1 innings. But in the end, all they had to show for it was 2 runs and a Loss.


David Price — Career vs Baltimore Orioles in 25 starts, 12-5 with a 2.81 ERA. Career at Fenway Park in 38 games (35 starts), 17-7 with a 3.29 ERA.
