Orioles on deck: What to watch in Monday's doubleheader vs. Yankees, plus lineups and more

Orioles (24-65) vs. Yankees (58-29)

Where: Camden Yards


First pitch: 4:05 p.m.

TV/Radio: MASN/105.7 The Fan


Starting pitchers: First game, Orioles RHP Jimmy Yacabonis (0-0, 8.53 ERA) vs. Yankees LP CC Sabathia (6-3, 3.02 ERA). Second game, Orioles RHP Yefry Ramirez (0-2, 2.51 ERA) vs. Yankees RHP Luis Cessa (0-1, 5.00 ERA)

What to watch

1. Two chances for a win. The Orioles, on a six-game losing streak, desperately need a win. They have two chances today.

2. Keep Yankees in yard. Easier said than done, since the Yankees lead MLB in home runs. Despite the Orioles’ decent starting pitching lately, they’ve been getting killed by home runs.

3. Bullpen relief. The Orioles must get solid starts from young pitchers Yefry Ramirez and Jimmy Yacabonis. The bullpen is one fumes.
