Game 89: Orioles (48-40) @ Yankees (48-39), 1:05

Patrick Smith

I don't even want to talk about this game, but I'll be watching and dreading, because that's how I roll. Maybe they'll surprise us and avoid the sweep.

Hiroki Kuroda has a 7-6 record despite a 2.95 ERA. Too bad for him, huh? With a 1.06 WHIP, he's pitched really well and has little to show for it. The Orioles scored four runs in six innings off of him in his last start.

Jason Hammel has a 7-5 record even though he has a 5.19 ERA. No one ever said that there was justice in the universe. I'd settle for a little more pitcher W-L injustice today. I probably won't get it. Have you seen these guys at the plate? Ouch.
