ESPN+ will host Thursday’s game between the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees with the first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York. Bruce Zimmermann will look to continue his early 2022 excellence on the mound for Baltimore, while New York will start with Jameson Taillon, who is also off to a strong start.
The Orioles’ struggles continued with one of MLB’s worst early records, and they lost the first two games of this series, looking to avoid losing a fourth straight game. Zimmermann didn’t allow a run in his first two starts and allowed 2 earned runs on 5 hits and a walk with 6 strikeouts in 6 innings of work last time out. Baltimore is averaging 3 points per game, which is tied for last in the league. Anthony Santander is the team’s leading hitter with a .241 batting average.
The Yankees keep rolling and will be looking to win their sixth straight game on Thursday afternoon. New York came away with a 5-2 win last night as Giancarlo Stanton hit his 350th career home run with 3 RBIs. Jameson Taillon has a 3.07 ERA in his first three starts. On April 16, he faced the Orioles roster and allowed 2 runs in 4.2 innings. New York is slightly above average offensively and Anthony Rizzo leads all MLB hitters with 8 homers.
