Can one big inning turn the Orioles around? After losing four of five in Boston and New York the Orioles were angry and desperate for a win. After 18 straight scoreless innings they provided some excitement with a seven-run seventh inning equaling their largest of the season. The big inning featuring three-run home runs by J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones sent to the Orioles to Cleveland with a 7-3 win over the New York Yankees before 40361 at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. “I think it’s a little frustration there. They didn’t want it to end” manager Buck Showalter said. "We've got [Justin] Masterson tomorrow. You think we'll be relaxed and confident? That's why people are playing meaningful games this time of the year because they've got good pitchers you're going to see every day. Scoring seven runs in one inning on Sept. 1 we hope it bodes well for a good September because we're going to need it. It's a good way to start the month." The win allowed ...

Yankees cannot afford a Hughes problem again

Don’t you hate it when you are right?  Phil Hughes on the Scranton Yankees (Photo credit: Wikipedia) What about when you are over and over again? Well, once again, I will state that in this situation I would have happily accepted being wrong about Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes ability. But enough is enough. I have been ripped to shreds for my so-called ‘obsession’ with Hughes’...

Eyeing the stretch run for the New York Yankees

Derek Jeter will play a crucial role in the Yankees’ drive to October.

Today marks the unofficial end of summer as the Yankees take on the White Sox from the Bronx this afternoon on Labor Day.

Preview: Yankees vs White Sox (8/3/13)

With the Yanks now just 2.5 games out of the wild card, Hiroki Kuroda (11-10, 2.89 ERA) takes on Chris Sale (10-12, 2.99 ERA) in hopes of gaining more ground. Kuroda will also hope to stop the bleeding after two straight rough outings. The right hander was blasted for seven runs against the Rays on Aug. 23 and five more against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Chris Stewart wondered afterward...

Yankees handle O’s again; Closing in on Wild Card spot

The New York Yankees have already taken two of three games against the Baltimore Orioles, with tomorrow still to play, and are now four games out from owning one the American League wild card spots.

The Orioles jumped on the Indians bullpen early...

White Sox-Yankees Preview

The New York Yankees can't afford to turn in a series against the Chicago White Sox like they did last month if they want to remain in contention for the playoffs. Phil Hughes surprisingly may give them a chance to get off to a good start in this one even though he is winless in nine outings. Hughes owns a lower ERA against the White Sox than versus any other AL foe as the...

Orioles-Indians Preview
