On Monday night, Chris Capuano (1-2) will make his fourth start since joining New York Yankees when he faced Bud Norris (9-7) and the Baltimore Orioles.
Chris Capuano pitched pretty well in just his third start of the year on Wednesday, but he could only come away with a no decision after going 6.2 innings against the Detroit Tigers. He allowed just one unearned run in that outing and struck out a season-high eight batters while walking one. His ERA is now down to 3.91 on the year and he has only given up three home runs on 50.2 innings.
Orioles catcher Nick Hundley has faced Capuano more than any of his teammates, but he is 0-for-9 against him with a walk and five strikeouts. Delmon Young is 2-for-2 against him with a double and three RBI.
Right-hander Bud Norris was able to pick up his ninth win of the season last Tuesday when he defeated the Toronto Blue Jays on the road. He pitched 5.1 innings in that outing and allowed just two runs on seven hits while walking two batters and striking out six. He currently owns a 3.68 ERA on the year and he has struck out 86 batters in 115 innings.
Yankees new third baseman Chase Headley has four hits in 12 at-bats against Norris with a home run and three RBI. Outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is just 1-for-7 against him with two walks and a strikeout.
