Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees: Ubaldo Jimenez vs Hiroki Kuroda

Momentum is only as good as your next day's starting pitcher, and for the last couple of years the Yankees have relied on Hiroki Kuroda. The veteran righty has had a solid month and a half after a rough start, and was pretty good against a dominant A's team last week.

He'll take on the rebuilt Ubaldo Jimenez, who has been mixing streaks of good and terrible all season.

The Orioles have kept pace with the Yankees as the Jays have fallen back to earth, and this weekend's series is every bit as important as the just completed sweep.

Ah, the joys of division games.

Go Yankees. Go baseball.
