Orioles-Yankees series preview

The Orioles are in town for a three-game series against the Yankees this week, starting in about 15 minutes.

Before the season started, I’ll admit that I thought the Orioles would come out of the gates strong. Boy was I wrong. I think they’ve been in last place just about every day this season.

The Yankees are 86-51 and the Orioles are 51-86. Need I say more?

Head to Head:
The Yankees have had a great year against the O’s, going 10-2 against them in a span of about six weeks in the beginning of the season. After this series, the Yankees head to Baltimore next weekend for their final meeting.

Pitching Matchups:

Date: Orioles starters Yankees starters
Mon., 1:05 p.m. Brian Matusz (7-12, 4.72) A.J. Burnett (10-12, 5.15)
Tues, 7:05 p.m. Jake Arrieta (4-6, 5.11) CC Sabathia (19-5, 3.02)
Wed., 1:05 p.m. B. Bergesen (6-10, 5.47) Ivan Nova (1-0, 2.89)

Lineup Notes: Nick Swisher is finally back in the lineup after being a late scratch two games in a row.

I predict a sweep. If Burnett can’t figure it out against the Orioles, what are the Yankees going to do with him?
