Yankees (13-10) Vs. Orioles (15-9), Game 3: Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees will look to secure a series win against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night in the rubber match of their three game set at Yankee Stadium.

New York took the first contest on Monday before dropping Tuesday's affair 7-1 with Phil Hughes getting knocked around once again.

The Yanks will now turn to Ivan Nova, who is 3-0 but getting lit up to the tune of a 5.18 ERA. Nova did beat Baltimore earlier in the season when he went seven innings and only allowed two runs on 10 hits.

Nova will be looking to win his 16th consecutive decision tonight, which would tie a franchise record.

Jake Arrieta hasn't been spectacular either, posting a 1-2 mark with a 4.45 ERA. He faced New York back on April 11th and was beaten when he surrendered four earned runs in six and two third innings.

The Orioles have gotten off to a very fast start this season, and a series win in the Bronx would have to just do wonders for their confidence.

New York on the other hand has to keep pace in the AL East, with Tampa Bay off and running as many expected.
