After taking two from the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, the New York Yankees look to extend their current four game winning streak Thursday and sweep their division foe.
Philip Hughes (15-12) will face Aaron Laffey (3-5) in the Blue Jays final game at Yankees Stadium this season.
Despite the Yankees' current streak, which includes winning six of their last seven, the Baltimore Orioles have kept pace with the Pinstripes, meaning a solid outing from a consistently inconsistent Hughes before a weekend series against the Wild Card hunting Oakland A's is imperative.
With closer Rafael Soriano saving both games on Wednesday with two innings pitched., expect manager Joe Girardi to make him unavailable for Thursday's series finale.
Currently, the Yankees hold a one game lead over the Baltimore Orioles for first place in the American League East.
