Orioles go for series win tonight in New York

With a win tonight on national television, the Orioles can win their fourth straight series at Yankee Stadium for the first time since May 14, 1976 through May 22, 1977.

No player on the Orioles' current 25-man roster was born then, so that’s a long time.

A win tonight would be significant because it would give the Orioles series wins in Boston and New York before heading home for a nine-game homestand against the Rays, Dodgers and Blue Jays.

An interesting stat to pass along from the Elias Sports Bureau: Last night’s 5-3 win over the Yankees was their 96th straight regular-season win when leading after seven innings dating back to August 2011. That’s the third longest streak for any club during the expansion era (since 1961), trailing only the 1998-’99 Yankees (116) and the 2002-’03 Braves (97).

Here's the starting lineups for both teams:

Nate McLouth LF
Manny Machado 3B
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Chris Davis 1B
Matt Wieters C
JJ Hardy SS
Ryan Flaherty 2B
Nolan Reimold DH
Wei-Yin Chen LHP

Brett Gardner CF
Vernon Wells LF
Robinson Cano 2B
Kevin Youkilis 3B
Ben Francisco DH
Brennan Boesch RF
Francisco Cervelli C
Lyle Overbay 1B
Jayson Nix SS
Hiroki Kuroda RHP
