6/21 Yankees Game Preview vs. Baltimore Orioles

The New York Yankees will host the Baltimore Orioles in the middle game of their three game set this weekend at the Bronx this afternoon. The Yankees will send Vidal Nuno to the mound to face off with the Orioles Bud Norris. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Nuno was roughed up once again in his last start against the Oakland Athletics allowing eight runs in three innings. Many around Yankee land are calling for Nuno to be removed from the rotation so this may be the make or break start for the soft tossing lefty. Nuno has a 7.43 ERA during his three starts in June and the Yankees are 1-5 in his starts at home this season.

Norris has won three starts starts for the Orioles and looks to ride that hot streak into the Bronx this afternoon at the stadium. Norris shut down the Toronto Blue Jays his last time out over 6.2 innings in his last start only allowing one run.

  1. Let's hope the dramatic win last night will put a little spark into this team. A few of the guys have shown signs of coming out of the funk they have been in!
    I want to see Jeter step up, like he did for a few games. It is much harder for him to have much continuity at the plate, with his age...but, he has done well in spots. Soriano is a lost cause. It looks like some of those we signed for their big bats are slowly waking up. I am looking for; Solarte, Roberts, Johnson, Soriano to join in and contribute more. Jeter still thinks he is 30 years old and wants to play every day....well, he ain't and shouldn't.
    Note to Jeter: Wise-up, you ain't a kid anymore, your wanting to hit, doesn't make it happen! Give yourself and the team a break, take a day off every once in a while and recharge the old body...then come back and knock the cover off the ball!

  2. This is the type of win that really can get a team going. McCann kept the line going with that RBI single before Beltran's blast and nobody is talking about it. Maybe both are coming out of it, which can really make this offense scary.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
