Baseball sure is a thing that is happening. The Yankees have been winning a bunch lately, which is kind of weird considering how aggressively mediocre this team has been all year long. Last night, in fact, matched the team's plateau at two games over .500, last reached on April 12th. If the Orioles get swept by this team, they should be embarrassed.
Today they'll try to set a new high at three games over .500. The country waits on bated breath. It's CC Sabathia's birthday, so a win would be fun for him, though he faces a tough foe in Chris Tillman, easily the best starter on the O's staff with a 3.29 ERA (75 ERA-).
First pitch is at 1:05pm, and you can watch the game on YES or MLB.tv.
