11 unanswered runs led the way to a series win in the Bronx for the Orioles. Tonight they go for the rare road sweep against their AL East foe.
As MASNSports.com’s Steve Melewski points out, the O’s are 4-1 in New York this season and have out-bombed the Bombers 29-12 in those five games.
The Orioles have a 4-1 record at NY this year and have outscored the Yankees 29-12 in the 5 games.

The Yankees have gone from being 23 games over .500 with a 10 game lead in the AL East two weeks ago to holding just a 5.5 game lead in the division today today. They’ve lost four in a row and a 3-7 in their last 10.
Should the Birds win tonight, they will guarantee a winning record in New York this season.
