Yankees & Orioles Announce Game 2 Starters

The Yankees and Orioles both announced their game 2 starters for the ALDS recently. The Yankees were torn because they wanted to split up the left handers in CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte but they also took into account that the workload on Hiroki Kuroda has been much more then he has ever faced and his stats are much better at home. The Yankees declined to split up the lefties and will start Andy Pettitte in game 2 against Wei Yin Chen, the Yankees killer, in Baltimore. Hiroki Kuroda will get some extra rest and start at home for game 3 and will be followed by Phil Hughes for game 4 at home. If a game 5 is necessary we will see CC Sabathia on three days rest.
