Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles 8/24

The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will begin a three-game weekend set tonight in Baltimore with a matchup of two veteran arms for each respective team. In the start tonight the Yankees will welcome back CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with Alex Cobb, the long time Tampa Bay Rays pitcher, for the Orioles. Let’s get to it here inside Camden Yards.

Sabathia will be activated off the disabled list to make the start tonight in Baltimore after missing the last two starts due to right knee inflammation. CC pitched well before heading to the disabled list on August 12, pitching six scoreless innings while allowing just one hit against the Texas Rangers. Didn’t seem like the knee was bothering him then, huh? #ConspiracyTheory

Cobb has pitched well lately for Baltimore posting a 1.55 ERA over his last four starts. Cobb has also been good against the Yankees this season allowing just one run over six innings of work in his only start against the Bronx Bombers on August 1st.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Oriole Park and Camden Yards and can be seen on the YES Network locally and on MASN if you are in the Baltimore area. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app, and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, for the love of God please beat the worst team in the American League and go Yankees!!
