CC begins three-game series vs. Orioles tonight
Greetings from the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, where the Yankees and Orioles will open a three-game series tonight at Camden Yards. The weather is getting a little bit warmer and there’s a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast, which I must say syncs perfectly with most of the experiences I’ve had here in Charm City over the years.
After being washed out yesterday against the Mariners in the Bronx, CC Sabathia will go through the paces of his routine once more and prepare to face the Orioles’ lineup. He’ll be opposed by a familiar face in veteran Freddy Garcia, and the Yankees should have no trouble absorbing the scouting report on Garcia, knowing full well that he’ll throw the kitchen sink of junk at them tonight in hopes of putting Baltimore in position to win.
Here are the pitching probables for the series against the Orioles:
Monday, May 20, 7:05 PM EDT, Oriole Park at Camden Yards
CC Sabathia, LHP (4-3, 3.19 ERA) vs. Freddy Garcia, RHP (0-2, 5.51)
Tuesday, May 21, 7:05 PM EDT, Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Phil Hughes, RHP (2-3, 5.88 ERA) vs. Miguel Gonzalez, RHP (2-2, 4.58 ERA)
Wednesday, May 22, 7:05 PM EDT, Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Hiroki Kuroda, RHP (6-2, 1.99 ERA) vs. Jason Hammel, RHP (5-2, 5.72 ERA)
