It has escaped notice, and rightfully so, because of Cleveland setting an American League record with a 22-game winning streak, but the Yankees are playing some excellent baseball in September as they continue to edge closer to a playoff spot and keep heat on the Red Sox in the East race. Despite appearing in games as a starter in 2017, Scott likely will join the Orioles bullpen.
NY remained three games behind AL East-leading Boston and matched its season high of 15 games over.500, set in mid-June. "It's a combination of us not swinging it well and them really pitching well", said Orioles manager Buck Showalter, whose team has posted a 10.66 ERA in NY a 7.77 overall against the Yankees. They can really swing it so you give them a chance to get back in the game they're gonna take it.
"They're a really good team", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Baltimore.
The pain the Orioles have endured this season at Yankee Stadium is hard to quantify. After a brief discussion and no warmup throws, Hellickson remained in the game and walked Aaron Judge on four pitches. NY has won seven of the last 10 meetings, while the total has gone over in all 10 games. "That's a bad combination. You go back through it after every game like we do, there's a lot of bad pitches being made, some stuff that isn't up to what they're capable of taking out there".

The Yankees ace went eight innings, throwing just 95 pitches, to earn his eighth win in his past 11 starts.
Jimenez is 1-6 with a 6.88 ERA in his last 11 appearances (10 starts) since the All-Star break. He is 2-4 with a 6.54 ERA since joining the Orioles in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Still, Ynoa pitched well for his second Orioles start, allowing two earned runs to a Yankees offense that had scored in double digits five times in the first seven meetings betweenthe teams in NY.
