Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles 5/4

The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles will hook up once again tonight for a head-to-head meeting between the two American League East Division rivals. This is only the second time in 18 games that these two teams will face each other with the first set of the season coming inside Oriole Park and Camden Yards. The Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound who may or may not be pitching for his starting rotation job while the Orioles will counter with Tyler Wilson. 

Sabathia has taken the loss in two of his last three decisions and has not pitched especially well in any of the three starts either. Sabathia's leash is seemingly getting shorter and shorter with manager Joe Girardi while Ivan Nova continues to pitch well out of the bullpen making his case for the rotation. Sabathia may be pitching for his job tonight in Baltimore.

 Wilson will be making his third start of the season tonight after starting out the season in the Orioles bullpen. Last June was the first time that Wilson has ever seen the Yankees and he threw 3.1 innings of scoreless relief against them. Let's hope for some better results tonight from the Yankees offense.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside of Oriole Park and Camden Yards and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV. New York needs to make some moves in the AL East Division and any potential playoff race and the team especially needs to take advantage of a good team like Baltimore when they are not at 100%. JJ Hardy is out for a while now and Adam Jones hasn’t looked right at the plate since the first week of the season. Don’t let Adderall Davis beat you and win the game. Simple as that. Well that and pitch well but who’s counting?

Go Yankees!
