Here's your game thread, my apologies for it's tardiness. I lost track of time. Oops.
To say this series is do or die is a bit of understatement. The Yankees need to win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.
YANKEES Gardner CF Jeter SS Cano 2B Soriano LF Rodriguez 3B Granderson DH Reynolds 1B Ichiro RF Romine C
ORIOLES McLouth LF Machado 3B Jones CF Davis 1B Hardy SS Markakis RF Valencia DH Casilla 2B Teagarden C
The pitching matchup is CC Sabathia vs. Miguel Gonzalez. Sabathia is looking to bounce back from another lackluster game in his last start. Gonazlez is 0-1 against the Yankees this season but has a 2.25 ERA at Yankee Stadium in two starts.
