Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles 9/6


The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will finish off their three-game set tonight inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards with a matchup of two potential aces for each ball club. The Yankees will send Sonny Gray to the mound who will be looking for a little bit of run support behind him for once while the Orioles will counter with Kevin Gausman who hasn’t needed much run support lately to win. The calendar is now in September and the regular season games are running out making each decision, each run and each contest all the more important.




Gray hasn’t received much run support since joining the Yankees as we alluded to earlier which may have contributed to his 2-4 start in six starts for the Bombers. Gray hasn’t been his dominant self either though and especially wasn’t in his last start against the Red Sox where he gave up four runs in seven innings of work including three home runs.




Gausman has posted a 2.55 ERA with 16 strikeouts in his last 17.2 innings and has been especially solid for Baltimore down the stretch. Gausman did not factor in the decision in his last start, a 13-inning affair the Orioles finally won on Friday night, but pitched well overall for Baltimore in the contest.




The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Oriole Park and Camden Yards and can be seen on the YES Network, MASN and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Enjoy the game, need a win so get a win, and go Yankees!!!
