The Orioles again look for their first win at New Yankee Stadium, but it'll be a tough order with Rich Hill on the mound. Rich's last start was on June 11th, before the All Star break. He'd originally been slated to be skipped but when Jeremy Guthrie took ill he got the shot and he made the most of it, allowing just two runs in six innings. Can he repeat tonight? If I were a betting man, I'd say no. But it could happen. Sergio Mitre makes his Yankees debut against Hill. Mitre has been around since 2003 but has never been more than a mediocre pitcher with a lifetime OPS+ of 81. He missed all of 2008 and has been very good in 7 starts this year at AAA.
