What to watch

1. Them? The Orioles have a winning record against just one of their American League East opponents and somehow it’s the Yankees. The Orioles have won two of three in this four-game series to move to 5-4 versus New York this season, despite being outscored 51-42 in their nine meetings so far. The Yankees are battling for the AL East title, but have slipped to 3½ games behind the Boston Red Sox, winners of eight in a row.

2. Bundy day. Since posting a 1.80 ERA over four starts from May 24 to June 11, Dylan Bundy has struggled a little bit around a brief stint on the disabled list. The right-hander has one quality start in his past three outings and allowed six runs (five earned) over 3 1/3 innings in his most recent game. Bundy has a 6.32 ERA over his past three starts, pushing his season mark from 3.66 to 4.08.

3. Schoop. Since being out of the lineup for two games to get a bit of a reset, Jonathan Schoop’s bat has been on fire. He’s hitting .432/.432/.730 with five doubles, two homers and three RBIs during a nine-game hitting streak. He has multiple hits in six of the nine games.
