The New York Yankees can complete a four-game sweep

Camden Yards.Entering the series , the Yankees and Orioles had split their 12 meetings this season. However, New York won three straight against Baltimore this weekend, including both games of a Saturday doubleheader. The Yankees (82-47) are a season-high 35 games above .500. Meanwhile, Baltimore (37-93) is jockeying with Kansas City for the top pick in the MLB Draft. Article continues below ...“We’re just trying to do what we do best and score runs,” Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks said.The Yankees are also getting a spark from rookie Miguel Andujar, who homered and had four RBIs in the first game Saturday. He is batting .300 and making a strong case for Rookie of the Year, not that he is thinking about personal accolades.“There are more important things right now,” Andujar said through an interpreter. “It’s very important to win games and we have a bigger goal in mind. That’s the focus right now. At the end of it all, if it happens, it happens. We are trying accomplish something bigger here than individual awards.” The Orioles, who have lost seven straight games Wil Myers Jersey , have traded key veterans as they begin a complete rebuild of their franchise. They’re already experiencing growing pains and have endured seven losing streaks of six games or more this season. Right-hander Luis Severino (16-6, 3.28 ERA) will start Sunday for the Yankees. After a dominant first half of the season, he is 2-4 in his last six starts, allowing seven home runs during that stretch.Severino was much better in his last outing against the Blue Jays when he allowed two runs and six hits with eight strikeouts in five innings. “I feel pretty good. Most of the game I was dominating,” Severino said after the game. “I feel good, my body is strong and my confidence is way up.”Severino is 4-1 with a 3.33 ERA in nine appearances (seven starts) against Baltimore. New York is going to need him to maintain his former solid form during the stretch run.The Yankees still trail the Red Sox in the American League East but are in the driver’s seat for one of the two wild-card berths. “We have to find the right adjustments in there to get him back on track,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said of Severino’s recent struggles. Dylan Bundy (7-12, 5.31) is having similar struggles for Baltimore. He has allowed 29 hits and six homers for 22 runs (21 earned) in 14 1/3 innings in his last three starts.Bundy has also struggled to keep the ball in the park, giving up 15 homers in his last eight starts, registering a whopping 9.08 ERA during that stretch. Bundy allowed seven runs and seven hits in just four innings of his last start against the Blue Jays, losing his third straight decision.“It’s tough Rickey Henderson Jersey , but we’re all going to have these stretches,” Bundy said after the game. “You just try to limit them. Right now, this one is going on for quite some time. Hopefully, in the future I can figure this out quicker and get better faster.”Bundy is 2-4 with a 6.03 ERA in eight appearances, including six starts, against the Yankees. He took a loss to New York on July 11. Showalter is also trying to find ways to get him back on track. “We’ve given him extra days quite a few times,” Showalter said. “We’ve attacked that and we’ll continue to look at if we need to do it again.” Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesThe American League earned a 14-10 win over the National League in the 2018All-Star LegendsCelebrity Softball Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.WWE star The Miz took home Most Valuable Player for the game:The Miz mikethemizMVP!MVP!MVP!Everywhere I go.Everything I do. I am MVP!Don鈥檛 believe me. Check the #CelebSoftball IbzQwK9KkEThe Miz went 2-for-2 at the plate and robbed ESPN analyst Tim Kurkjian of a sure base hit before completing a double play.Taking a page from Babe Ruth, The Miz called his shot in the second inning during his first at-bat:Pro Wrestling Sheet WrestlingSheetfor those tired of watching #RAW tonight - you can watch mikethemiz drive in RBI鈥檚 in the legends amp;amp; celebrity softball game on ESPN right now. yyrftYJfv5Unlike Ruth, he only doubled to center field.The former WWE champion's dominance extended to the mound as well. He pitched a scoreless fifth inning, setting the National League down in order.The American League could have used The Miz in the sixth inning as it entered with a 14-3 lead. The National League put seven runs on the board in the final frame to make things interesting.Washington Wizards point guard John Wall tripled during the National League's rally , which gave the fans in the nation's capital something to cheer about.However, the NL ran out of gas to give the AL the victory.Entering the event, plenty of fans were eager to see Bill Nye step to the plate. The host ofBill Nye the Science Guy was blunt before the game about his limitations on the diamond, per's Alyson Footer:Alyson Footer alysonfooterBill Nye, the Science Guy: quot;I cant hit, I cant throw, I cant run. I cant hit for power. I miss everything. Im going to try to hit it to the other field. Im going to try to hit it to second base.quot; Also, somewhat related: Nye is very much against banning the shift.True to his word, Nye struck out in his first at-bat:Dan Skoff weatherdanThe math of a BillNye strikeout. 馃槒That might be the ONLY strikeout Ive ever seen in the Legends amp;amp; Celebrity Softball Tournament. 馃う鈥嶁檪锔?EiDjyCAkQDVince Cellini Vince_CelliniFlipped over to #AllStarGame see Bill Nye strike out swinging in celebrity softball. I didnt think he could be nerdier but I was wrong.Nye did, however, single in the bottom of the third Cory Spangenberg Jersey , bringing everybody in Nationals Park to their feet. He had clearly identified the exact angle the ball needed to travel in order to drop in over Orange Is the New Black star Dascha Polanco:ESPN espnBILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL dQbRXV8m98Nye arguably didn't have a worse performance than Hall of Famer Andre Dawson.

Celebrity softball is a legend killer.Next time, Nye might be able to give Dawson some pointers on route efficiency and how to read the trajectory of batted balls.The Cleveland Indians will host the 2019 MLB All-Star Game, so it seems a foregone conclusion The Miz will be back to defend his MVP. The Parma, Ohio, native has never shied away from his Cleveland fandom, and he'll receive a hero's welcome at Progressive Field.
