The Yankees, coming from a series win against the Detroit Tigers, look to continue their season success against the Baltimore Orioles, who just took a series from the Oakland Athletics. In their first meeting earlier this year the Yankees swept the O's at Camden Yards, so here's hoping they can do that here in Yankee Stadium. Jason Hammel will take the mound for the Orioles tonight while the Yankees send out Hiroki Kuroda. Currently Baltimore is tied with Tampa Bay for 1st place in the American League East, with the Yankees only 1.5 games behind both of them.
go yankees go you are #1
