What to watch

1. Brooms are out. The Yankees are trying to sweep the four-game series from the Orioles and they are 12-6 against Baltimore going into today’s finale. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, who missed one game this series because of leg soreness, is out of the lineup again.

2. All Rise. Aaron Judge wishes he could play every game against the Orioles. He goes into Sunday with 11 homers vs. Baltimore pitching this season, most against any opponent. It’s more than a quarter of his 43 home runs this season.

3. Bringing the heat. Tanner Scott, a 23-year-old who regularly throws a 96-99 mph fastball and posted a 2.22 ERA in 69 innings at Double-A Bowie this season, was activated today by the Orioles. He’s hit more than 100 mph on the radar gun.
