9/14 Game Preview vs. Baltimore Orioles

The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will finish out their four games in three days set this weekend in Camden Yards tonight as a part of ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. The Yankees had a demoralizing loss Friday afternoon that has all but ended any shot of a postseason run so these games feel more and more like they are simply being played out. Tonight in prime time the Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound to face off with the Orioles Chris Tillman. The game will be played at 8:05 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Kuroda has officially figured out how to throw a full season in the Bronx and not break down during the final months of the season. Kuroda has cut back on how much he threw in between starts since the All Star Break and has seemingly gotten stronger as the season goes on unlike his last two seasons as a Yankee. Kuroda should be fresh tonight as well as he allowed nine hits last time out and only lasted 3.1 innings. 

Tillman is coming off a start in which he allowed one run on six hits with five strike outs in five innings in a victory. Tillman has owned the Yankees this season and I cannot say I expect much different tonight on ESPN.

Go Yankees!!
