The Orioles beat the Rangers 5-1 tonight which means the Yankees will head into Baltimore for the ALDS which will start on Sunday night.

Game 20: Robinson Cano Continues Masterful April; Yanks top Os 8-3

Robinson Cano

The Yankees may only be 3-4 in their last 7 games but it's definitely not due to a lack of production in the five hole. Robinson Cano is 14-18 in his last 7 games with 2 HR and 5 RBI, one of those HRs coming in last nights victory in game two verse Balitmore. Cano's ...

Game 19: Seriously? Yanks' Lose to MLB-Worst O's

Thought this first series against the Baltimore Orioles would be a breeze? Perhaps not. The Yankees fell short to the O's 5-4, behind staff ace Kevin Millwood and to the dismay of a shaky Yankee bullpen. The first inning and a half went quickly. Luke Scott led off the O's second with a single to left, followed ...
