Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles 9/14

The New York Yankees have many teams eyeing them and gunning for them as seemingly half of the American League is in the midst of a playoff chase. While every team out there wants to play spoilers for the Wild Card leading Yankees the team from the Bronx could do some of the same tonight against one of their most bitter rivals in the Baltimore Orioles. Tonight the Yankees and the Orioles begin a huge and potentially season-ending four-game series in the Bronx with the Orioles backs against the playoff wall. Can the Yankees put the nail in the Orioles coffin while also taking a couple huge step towards their own playoff dreams? You’ll have to watch to find out as the Yankees send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to face off with Wade Miley for the Orioles.

Tanaka was not sharp in his last start where the right-hander gave ups even runs in four-plus innings of work against the Texas Rangers. Tanaka also gave up seven runs against this Baltimore Orioles team the last time he faced them on May 31 in 5.2 innings of work. Tanaka will have to be much better tonight in the Bronx for the playoff-hopeful Yankees.

Miley has run into the saw mill that is the Cleveland Indians in each of his last two starts so you would have to think seeing the Yankees offense led by Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius would be a sight for sore eyes, right? We hope not. 

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network, MASN in Baltimore, MLB Network nationally 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. I would personally like nothing more than to end Buck Showalter and the Orioles season, whether it be mathematically or not, tonight and into the weekend in the Bronx because you know if the shoe were on the other foot the Orioles and their spiteful former Yankees manager would do the same to us, or worse. Need a win, get a huge win and crush those birds. Go Yankees!
