Staff ace CC Sabathia, after going 8⅔ innings in New York's 7-2 Game 1 victory, will take the mound against Baltimore's Jason Hammel, who went 5⅔ innings, allowing two earned runs in Game 1.

Game time for the Yankees and Orioles is set for 5:07 p.m. ET and will be televised on TBS.

The nightcap features Game 5 of the National League Division series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Washington Nationals, as Adam Wainwright will make the start for the defending champion Cardinals against Washington's Gio Gonzalez.
