New York Yankees (78-51) At Baltimore Orioles (52-77), 7:05 P.M.

(Sports Network) – Freddy Garcia returns from the disabled list this evening when the New York Yankees complete what is now a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

Garcia, who will be pitching for the first time since August 7 because of a finger injury he sustained at home, has been a pleasant surprise for the Yanks, going 10-7 with a 3.16 ERA. He had won three straight starts before getting a no-decision against Boston on August 7, despite allowing just a run and five hits in five innings.

With A.J. Burnett’s season spiraling out of control the Yankees have to hope Garcia picks up where he left off before going on the disabled list, when he had become one of the team’s most reliable starters.

The Yankees have won 10 of their 13 meetings with the O’s this season, including five of the seven games played in Baltimore.

New York trails Boston by two games in the AL East. After this series the Yankees will visit Fenway Park for three games starting on Tuesday.

Pitching for the O’s tonight will be righty Alfredo Simon, who is 4-6 with a 4.30 ERA.
