Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles 9/3

The middle game of the Yankees and Orioles three-game set is set to kick off tonight with another great pitching matchup inside Oriole Park and Camden Yards. The most important game of the season for these two clubs, until tomorrow’s game anyway, will showcase CC Sabathia making the start for the Yankees while the Orioles counter with Kevin Gausman.

Sabathia pitched well enough to win in his last start going 6.2 innings while allowing three runs on six hits but the offense was nonexistent behind him. Sabathia struck out eight Orioles batters but ultimately lost to Gausman and the Orioles 5-0.

Gausman picked an awfully inconvenient time to earn his first road victory of the season as he did so in the Bronx inside Yankee Stadium against the Yankees. Gausman did allow seven hits in the contest but he struck out nine and didn’t walk anyone in seven shutout innings in a victory against New York.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Oriole Park and Camden Yards and can be seen on the yES Network and MLB TV. I know this is a bit premature to say but you have to think that as the temperatures begin to drop a little on the East Coast and as we play a Saturday night game in the midst of a pennant race that tonight’s game should have a bit of a playoff feel and atmosphere to it. Let’s see how the Yankees young guns respond. Go Yankees!
