NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees have apparently caught the Baltimore Orioles at the right time as they attempt to inch closer to first place in the American League East. Nike Just Do It Shoes Canada .New York has capitalized on absences to Baltimores lineup and a slump by those who are playing to take the first three games of the series.The Yankees can get the four-game sweep of the Orioles on Thursday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.Weve always felt that way, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said of making a run in the AL East. Its a long season. Im not sure exactly how many games are left, but theres a lot of games left and we never got too low when we were struggling early on in the season and were not going to celebrate because we won four in a row because we got to go win tomorrow.Baltimore has played three games without Chris Davis, who is slowly recovering from a stomach virus. The Orioles have played the last two without Matt Wieters (sore right foot), were without Manny Machado (stomach virus) on Wednesday and Adam Jones left in the eighth inning with back spasms.Davis is likely to play and Jones left no doubt about his status, saying Ive got nothing else to do.As for Wieters and Machado, acting manager John Russell said both are day to day. So is manager Buck Showalter, who also caught the stomach virus, but Russell would be surprised if Showalter wasnt making out the lineup Thursday.Its probably going to take a hurricane hitting New York for him not to be here tomorrow, Russell said.Regardless of what the opposing lineup looks like, the Yankees will try to get a fifth straight win, which is one shy of their season high, and continue their run of good pitching.During a four-game streak that has seen the Yankees (48-46) knock Baltimore from first place and match a season high by getting two games above .500, New York has received sharp performances from Masahiro Tanaka, Ivan Nova, Nathan Eovaldi and Michael Pineda.Its playoff baseball for us, and we have to play extremely well, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. I think theyre responding, especially after we lost two to start out this homestand. They responded well and we need them to keep doing that.Pineda struck out eight and allowed five hits in six scoreless innings during Wednesdays 5-0 win. Starting with Tanaka, New Yorks starting pitchers have allowed three earned runs in the last 36 innings, marking the first time the Yankees have had four straight starts of one earned run or less since Sept. 18-21, 2003.Meanwhile, the Orioles are experiencing adequate starting pitching but ineffective hitting. The Orioles are batting .267 overall but .187 (36-for-193) in their last six games and are 3-for-33 with runners in scoring position during those games.Its tough right now, Russell said. Weve lost some key guys in our lineup. When you lose that many at once, it makes it pretty tough and hopefully theyll start trickling back into the lineup sooner rather than later.The Yankees are in line for their first four-game sweep of the Orioles since Sept. 18-21, 2005, at the original Yankee Stadium but must get enough offense against Chris Tillman (13-2, 3.29 ERA).Tillmans record is 11 games above .500 for the first time since he was 16-5 after a win over the Yankees on Sept. 9, 2013. He also is 6-0 against teams from the AL East after allowing one run and four hits in seven dominant innings during Saturdays 2-1 win at Tampa Bay.The Orioles are 9-0 in Tillmans starts against divisional opponents.Team wins are important, Tillman said. All the personal stuff goes by the wayside when it comes to winning ballgames. Thats our approach and its good to be a part of it.Two of those victories have been against the Yankees at Camden Yards.On May 3, Tillman struck out nine while allowing one run and five hits in seven innings during a 4-1 win. A month later, he allowed five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings and did not get a decision when his teammates rallied for a 6-5 win.Tillman is 4-6 with a 4.87 ERA in 18 career starts against the Yankees.In New York, he is 3-4 with a 7.30 ERA in eight outings.CC Sabathia will be seeking his 20th career win against the Orioles and his 15th with the Yankees. More important, he will be looking to reverse some of his recent struggles.Since June 22, he is 0-3 with a 7.94 ERA and during those starts he has allowed 39 hits and walked 10 in 28 1/3 innings.Before lowering his ERA to 3.94 during the recent stretch, Sabathia had a 0.82 ERA in a span of seven starts and was the first Yankee to allow four earned runs or less in a span of seven starts since Phil Niekro did it in 1984 at age 45.The latest subpar outing for Sabathia was Saturdays 5-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox when he allowed five runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.Sabathia faced the Orioles twice when the teams met in Baltimore. On May 4, he allowed six hits in seven innings during a 7-0 victory while suffering a groin injury. On June 5, he allowed two hits but walked six in five innings and the Yankees eventually lost 3-1.

The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. LOS ANGELES -- The Pittsburgh Pirates resume their chase in the National League wild-card race when they clash with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second game of their three-game series Saturday at Dodger Stadium.Pittsburghs Gerrit Cole (7-7, 2.94 ERA) will face Los Angeles Brandon McCarthy (2-2, 3.00 ERA) as the Pirates try to catch the Miami Marlins for the second wild-card spot. The Pirates closed to within a game of the Marlins after beating the Dodgers 5-1 on Friday behind home runs by Andrew McCutchen and Jordy Mercer.The Dodgers (64-51), who lead the wild-card race, remain a game back of the San Francisco Giants for the top spot in the National League West.Cole will be looking to bounce back from a 7-3 setback to the Cincinnati Reds last Sunday, particularly since he has experienced much success against the National League West. Cole, who starred at UCLA, is 13-3 in 19 career starts against the NL West, including wins in his last four decisions. Cole is 5-3 with a 2.93 ERA in eight starts on the road this season.Against the Dodgers, Cole is 3-0 with a 4.32 ERA in four career starts. At Dodger Stadium, Cole is 2-0 with a 4.05 ERA.Joc Pederson leads the Dodgers with a .500 batting average in only four at-bats.McCarthy had trouble locating his fastball in Sundays no-decision against the Boston Red Sox. McCarthy walked five for the second straight outing, threw two wild pitches and allowed two runs on hits in 3 2/3 innings. In his last three starts, McCarthy is 0-2 with a 5.91 ERA.McCarthy and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt worked on his mechanics this week and believe they solved some of his problems. Nike Vapormax Canada. We feel confident, and he feels confident, to make that start on Saturday, manager Dave Roberts said.McCarthy will need a solid performance to cool off the Pirates, who have defeated the Dodgers in five of their six meetings this season. McCarthy will also need to slow McCutchen, who has feasted on Los Angeles pitching.McCutchen, who went 2-for-4 with two RBI on Friday, is 8-of-16 (.500) with two homers in his last seven games at Dodger Stadium. McCutchen is hitting .412 with three home runs and six RBI in five games against the Dodgers, four of those Pittsburgh wins.Andrew had a very solid game, got a good swing off of the plate. Good to see, manager Clint Hurdle said. Hes worked hard, he had some good swings (Friday), liked the way he swung the bat, liked the way he attacked the zone to drive the ball.Any time a player can square up a ball here at Dodger Stadium and get it out to the opposite field it gets your attention. The ball doesnt carry well here at night.In four games against the Pirates, McCarthy has a 1-2 mark with a 4.74 ERA with 15 strikeouts and seven walks. He hasnt faced them since July 3, 2014, when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.Although he hasnt given up any home runs, the Pirates are hitting .321 against him. ' ' '
