You can take your stupid run differential argument and shove it where the sun don’t shine. The Baltimore Orioles won their third and final series in New York on Sunday with an 8-3 pounding of the Yankees. It’s the first time since 1976 that they’ve won three series in the Bronx.
In their six wins in New York, New York, the Orioles have outscored the Yankees 42-14. For those continuing to dwell on run differential, that’s +28.
Too small a sample size or dominance against the AL East leading Yankees? I guess it all depends on what argument you’re trying to support.
Statistics are fickle and the Orioles are only concerned about one. Wins.
They have 74 of them now and are just two shy of first place.
