It's Old Timer's Day at Yankee Stadium today, and even more important, it's Masahiro Tanaka Day at Yankee Stadium, too.
Tanaka will go for his 12th win of the season today as the Yankees will also be trying to take the third and final game of this weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees won the opener on Friday night thanks to a three-home walk-off belted into the seats by Carlos Beltran, but couldn't carry that magic into Saturday's game, as the O's used four homeruns to defeat the Yankees, 6-1.
The Yankees are 12-2 so far this season in games started by Tanaka, who currently lead the league with 11 wins and a 1.99 ERA. He's the clear favorite right now to win not only the AL Rookie of the Year award, but the Cy Young award as well.
Today's lineup against Baltimore:
SS Derek Jeter
DH Carlos Beltran
