Both New York baseball teams find themselves in action Friday night, let's take a look at their matchups:
New York Yankees: vs. Oakland A's, 7:05 p.m. ET, YES Network: The Yankees have a one-game lead in the AL East, but if that doesn't pan out, this is a preview of the potential AL Wild Card one-game playoff. Every game is obviously vital for the Yankees as they hope to beat out the Baltimore Orioles for the division title. CC Sabathia hasn't been at his best lately, losing his last three decisions. His opponent, Jarrod Parker, has really had a nice rookie season and will play in Yankee Stadium for the first time since holding the Yanks to one run in an eight-inning outing in July.
New York Mets: vs. Miami Marlins, 7:10 p.m. ET, SNY: Not much at stake for either team here, although they are only a half-game apart in the fight for fourth place in the NL East. It's also a good pitching matchup, as Jonathon Niese has impressed all season long with a 3.46 ERA while his opponent, the rookie Jacob Turner, has been alright since the Marlins acquired him and pitched seven shutout innings against the Reds his last time on the mound.
