In Vidal Nuno‘s last outing, he only lasted three innings and his ERA went to a whopping 5.90. It’s safe to say Nuno’s job is on thin ice, but he has a chance to get the Yankees to change their mind as he takes the hill in the second game of the three game set against the Baltimore Orioles.
Nuno will oppose Bud Norris who is 6-5 with a 3.73 ERA coming into the series. However, don’t let his ERA fool you. In his last two outing, he’s only allowed one run–and that was against the first place Toronto Blue Jays in his last start.
The Yankees are not only looking forward to this matchup, but they’re also excited for Tino Martinez day, a day where Martinez will get his own plaque in Monument Park. The festivities will take place before the game so the fans that are going to game are going to want to be in their seats for the event.
The Yankees offense has been slightly inconsistent but they were able to get the job done last night. They have a four game win streak thanks to their walk-off win by Carlos Beltran, but if they want to make it five in a row, all the parts have to work together as the Yankees continue their quest to take over first place in the AL East.
