Saturday afternoon, the New York Yankees will take the field behind Shane Greene (4 – 3, 3.57 ERA) as they face the Baltimore Orioles and Miguel Gonzalez (9 – 7, 3.22 ERA). Greene makes his 12th start and 13th appearance as Gonzalez makes his 24th start and 25th appearance.
Shane Greene took the hard luck loss in his last outing for his 2nd defeat in a row. Greene allowed just 2 runs and 5 hits through 5 innings with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts. But his offense failed to get on the scoreboard and Greene paid the price. Despite the 2 game losing streak, Greene has provided the Yankees with some quality innings since coming up from Triple-A. Greene is 3 - 3 in his last 10 outings. At Triple-A, he was 5 – 2 with a 4.61 ERA in 13 starts and 2 relief appearances.
Greene faced the Orioles once earlier this season and he got the win after holding Baltimore scoreless over 7.1 innings.
Miguel Gonzalez earned his 3rd straight victory in his last outing. Gonzalez hurled 6.1 scoreless innings and allowed just 6 hits and 3 walks while striking out 4. In his last 3 starts, Gonzalez has allowed just 1 run and that was on a solo homer. Gonzalez is 5 -3 in his last 10 outings. In 2013, he posted a record of 11 – 8 with a 3.78 ERA in 28 starts and 2 relief appearances.
Last season, Gonzalez was 0 – 2 with a 4.66 ERA in 5 starts against the Yankees. This season, he has failed to get the decision in either of his 2 appearances against New York.
