Daily MLB Previews for 6/10
Interleague play is back and there are some great matchups today. Here you can find the previews for all the games of the day.
New York Mets (32-28) vs. New York Yankees (33-25) 1:05 PM ET Preview
Coming out of retirement seems to agree with New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte, who looks invigorated after calling it quits and sitting out the 2011 season. The 39-year-old Pettitte has given the Yankees quality and quantity, pitching at least seven innings in each of his last four starts. He has been particularly dominant at Yankee Stadium, logging a 3-1 record with a 1.88 ERA in four starts entering the Subway Series finale against the New York Mets on Sunday.
The Mets were on the verge of overtaking Washington for first place in the National League East earlier in the week, but they have since plummeted to five losses in six games. A lack of offense has been the culprit for the Mets, who have scored only three times in the two losses to the Yankees and have managed nine runs in their last four games. The lone runs in Saturday's 4-2 loss came via solo home runs by David Wright and Omar Quintanilla.
Tampa Bay Rays (34-25) vs. Miami Marlins (31-28) 1:10 PM ET Preview
Toronto Blue Jays (30-29) vs. Atlanta Braves (34-25) 1:35 PM ET Preview
Kansas City Royals (24-33) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates (31-27) 1:35 PM ET Preview
Philadelphia Phillies (29-32) vs. Baltimore Orioles (33-26) 1:35 PM ET Preview
Cliff Lee has yet to taste victory this season, but he stands a good chance on Sunday when the Philadelphia Phillies vie to win their three-game series versus the host Baltimore Orioles. Lee, who boasts a 17-5 record in interleague play, has won four of six career decisions versus the Orioles. The southpaw has been done in this season primarily by a lack of run support by the light-hitting Phillies.
Adam Jones provided the pop on Saturday as his two-run walk-off homer in the 12th inning gave the Orioles a 6-4 triumph. The victory was Baltimore's league-best eighth in extra innings while Philadelphia suffered its league-high sixth walk-off loss. The reeling Phillies have dropped seven of their last eight while the Orioles won for just the fourth time in 13 games.
