Orioles-Yankees series preview

The first-place Yankees (82-48) take on the last-place Orioles (54-77) at Camden Yards for three lovely night games with plenty of Yankees fans expected in attendance.

The Yanks are 6-3 against the O’s this season, but have not faced each other since the middle of May. The Yankees host the Orioles next weekend for the last three times of the season.

Pitching Matchups: (via PeteAbe)
Monday, 7:05 p.m. — Andy Pettitte (11-6, 4.18) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (9-12, 5.25)
Tuesday, 7:05 p.m. — A.J. Burnett (10-8, 4.10) vs. David Hernandez (4-6, 4.24)
Wednesday, 7:05 p.m. — CC Sabathia (15-7, 3.56) vs. Jason Berken (4-11, 6.33).

My Outlook:
Guthrie, Hernandez and Berken are nothing special, and the Yankees are bringing their top three starters. f the Yankees sweep, the Orioles are one game away from being officially eliminated from the postseason. Yes, it’s getting close to that time of the year already.
