The Baltimore Orioles are out of the gate slow, but they did take the opener of this series. While it looks like the Yankees have the pitching advantage here with A.J. Burnett on the mound, a closer look indicates otherwise. Brian Matusz allowed just 1 run o the Yanks in his only lifetime appearance, while the O's have had their way with Burnett. The Orioles, in the last seven times they have faced Burnett, have hit him very hard. The line reads 40.2 innings 53 hits and 30 runs, for an ERA of 6.64. The Orioles are sporting a 5-1 record with Matusz on the hill vs. teams with a winning record. I'll go with Baltimore here.
