My selection is on New York over Baltimore at 7:05 pm et on Tuesday. This is a big spot for the Yankees after they dropped back-to-back games against the Red Sox in Boston over the weekend. I like their chances of rebounding as they open a series with the Orioles on Tuesday. Albert Suarez gets the start for Baltimore. He'll be tasked with slowing a Yankees offense that ranks tops in baseball in team OPS vs. right-handed pitching this season (and it's not particularly close). Suarez has posted a terrific 2.79 FIP and 1.05 WHIP this season but there's a reason he wasn't on a big league staff from 2018 to 2023. Nestor Cortes was probably fortunate to avoid facing the Red Sox over the weekend as they've had his number in recent years. It's a different story with the Orioles as their current hitters are just 30-for-139 off of Cortes with only eight extra base hits. Cortes enters this start with a 3.76 FIP and 1.12 WHIP on the season. He's been lights out at home, sporting a 1.77 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in seven outings. Take New York (8*).
