Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees

  1. The Yankees are 49-21 (.700) versus the Orioles since 2019, matching the highest winning percentage by one major league team against another over the last five seasons (minimum: 50 games). The Astros have an identical record versus the Mariners since 2019.
  2. The Orioles have played 11 games this season in which they and their opponent each had 10 or more hits, the most of any major league team. Baltimore has a 6-5 record in those 11 games, including wins against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday and Sunday.
  3. Cedric Mullins had five hits against the Blue Jays on Sunday. It was the third five-hit game of his MLB career, with the others coming in 202. The only active players with more five-hit games than Mullins are George Springer (five) and Christian Yelich (four).
  4. Kyle Bradish has pitched at least six innings and allowed no more than one run in each of his last two starts and in seven of his last 15 starts, dating back to August 26 last year. In those seven games he allowed only three runs (two earned) and 20 hits in 49.1 innings.
  5. The Yankees have hit at least two home runs in 13 of their last 15 games, after doing so in only 11 of their first 34 games this season.
  6. Gerrit Cole has 1998 strikeouts in 277 career games. Cole will reach 2000 career strikeouts in the third fewest games of any pitcher in MLB history, behind Randy Johnson (262) and Clayton Kershaw (277).
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 5/23/2023 thru 5/25/2023

It took the Baltimore Orioles several innings on Wednesday to shake off their disappointment from the night before, when Felix Bautista's hanging splitter resulted in a tying homer to Aaron Judge and an eventual defeat to the New York Yankees.

The Orioles displayed their resilience by storming back with an eight-run seventh inning to overcome a 5-1 deficit on Wednesday to beat the Yankees 9-6. Now they can win the three-game series if they can take the finale on Thursday night in New York.

Baltimore is attempting to even the season series at three games apiece after pulling off its 19th comeback win of the season.

Adam Frazier, who has reached safety in 17 straight games, sparked the seventh-inning rally with a three-run homer off Nestor Cortes. Gunnar Henderson followed with a two-run, pinch-hit double off Jimmy Cordero to give the Orioles the lead.

"We're never out. Don't count us out, and we'll battle back," Henderson said. "There's no quit in this team.

Frazier added: "I told the guys after the game, we're never out of it. One through nine, everybody can impact the game in a positive way at any moment."

Baltimore notched its biggest inning since a nine-run frame against the Kansas City Royals on Sept. 8, 2021. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Orioles also matched their biggest inning against the Yankees in New York.

The Orioles enter Thursday with 10 wins in their past 14 games since dropping three straight from May 6-8.

New York's bullpen allowed one hit over the final five innings on Tuesday, allowing the offense to chip away and eventually win 6-5 in 10 innings. The Yankees' relievers entered Wednesday with a 2.80 ERA, the lowest in the majors, and a 22 1/3-inning scoreless streak. The team hoped to get the win while not using Michael King, Wandy Peralta and Ron Marinaccio.

"We were just short back there and trying to finish it in a leverage spot with Cordero and Clay (Holmes)," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

New York got two homers from Gleyber Torres and one from Isiah Kiner-Falefa but saw its season-high, five-game winning streak end. Still, the Yankees have 15 victories in their past 21 games.

"Just unlucky there, but it happened quick," Cortes said.

Kyle Gibson (5-3, 4.27 ERA) will start on Thursday for the Orioles. The right-hander is 1-3 with a 4.74 ERA in four starts this month. Gibson stopped a personal three-start losing streak on Friday in Toronto when he allowed one run on five hits in seven innings, equaling his longest start of his career.

Gibson is 1-6 with a 6.75 ERA in 10 career starts against the Yankees. He last faced them in July 2019 in Minnesota when he took a no-decision after allowing five runs on seven hits in five innings during New York's wild 14-12, 10-inning win.

Clarke Schmidt (2-4, 6.00 ERA) will take the mound for the Yankees. He has allowed two runs or fewer in three of his past four starts. Schmidt bounced back from yielding seven runs at home to the Tampa Bay Rays on May 14 to give up just two runs on five hits in five-plus innings during a 6-2 win at Cincinnati on Friday.

Schmidt is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in six career appearances, five in relief, against the Orioles. His one start against them came on April 7 in Baltimore. The right-hander allowed four runs on five hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings during a no-decision.
