Game Preview: Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees 5/8

Tonight the New York Yankees stay home inside Yankee Stadium to play host to Adam Jones and the Baltimore Orioles in the second of a four game set. This will be the final night game for these two this series as the next two contests will be played in the afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Tonight the Yankees will send Adam Warren to the mound as he faces off with a thorn in the Yankees side named Miguel Gonzalez for the Orioles. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Warren is coming off a start in which he allowed four runs in 5.2 innings against the Boston Red Sox in a victory on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. That start actually marked the third consecutive outing that Warren has pitched 5.2 innings as he continues to look for a start in which he can finish the 6th inning. Warren recorded his second victory of the season in the start and looks for win number three against another tough American League East opponent tonight.

  • Gonzalez is also coming off a victory in which he allowed just four hits and one walk in 7.2 shutout innings against the Tampa Bay Rays. Gonzalez recorded six strikeouts in the contest and looks to remain tough against the American League East and especially tough against the Yankees tonight in the Bronx.

New York heads back out on the road after this quick little four game set in the Bronx and after having their five series winning streak snapped against Toronto it would be nice to go back out on the road with a series victory. Truth be told I would honestly be happy with a split with this tough team but you don’t start a blog called the Greedy Pinstripes and clamor for a split, I want a win! Go Yankees, get me that win!
