BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles playoff hopes are fading a bit while the New York Yankees are trying to pull back into the postseason race, and both will have a chance to help their causes when they meet in the opener of a three-game series Friday at Camden Yards.Baltimore (72-61) lost four of its last six games and slipped four games behind first place Toronto in the American League East. The Orioles also are tied with Detroit for the final wild-card spot with the Yankees (69-63) sitting 2 1/2 games behind them.New York has been making a move with a bunch of young players doing well, led by catcher Gary Sanchez. Hes the rookie whos already banged out 11 homers and 21 RBI in just 25 games and posted an impressive .374 batting average as the kids are leading the way after the Yankees unloaded a bunch of high-priced veterans at the trade deadline.Its definitely a nice feeling when youre doing well, and at the same time, the team is doing well, Sanchez said through an interpreter to MLB.com. Were right there in the fight; its even better. If we keep winning games, well have a good chance of making the playoffs.New Yorks big question is if the young players can continue to play well in the pressure-packed final 30 games after taking two of three in Kansas City. Theyll have to do it against the American League East, as will the Orioles, as both teams play most of their schedules in the division in the last month.On Friday, Dylan Bundy (7-5, 3.71) gets the start for the Orioles, who dropped two of three to Toronto this week. The right-hander has pitched very well since joining the rotation in mid-July although running into trouble in two of the last three starts, including last Saturdays outing versus New York. Thats when Bundy allowed five runs on seven hits in four innings and took the loss.The Yankees send Chad Green (2-3, 4.09) to the mound. Baltimore touched him up for four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings last Saturday but got a no-decision in the win.The Orioles made several moves on Wednesday to try and improve their outfield depth and give them speed and defensive help. They began having problems out there when utility outfielder Joey Rickard went on the DL on July 22 (retroactive to the day before) due to a thumb injury.Losing him was costly, manager Buck Showalter said earlier this week. It hurt the teams versatility in the outfield, and that situation worsened when center fielder Adam Jones strained his hamstring and has been out since last Friday.Showalter said Wednesday that theyre hoping Jones can return on FridayThe Orioles also acquired outfielders Drew Stubbs (waivers from Texas) and Michael Bourn (trade from Arizona), which gives them that extra help in the outfield, especially if Jones needs more time to recover.But the Orioles, whove been slipping since the All-Star break, know that the time for winning is now.Its big from here on out, pitcher Yovani Gallardo said. All these games are real important for us, and we just have to figure out a way to get it done.Julius Erving Jersey Large . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder.
