BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have put the New York Yankees in a precarious situation. Cheap New York Giants Jerseys .Kevin Gausman outpitched CC Sabathia for the second time in seven days, Adam Jones homered and the Orioles got their third straight shutout against New York, 2-0 on Saturday night.Baltimore will seek to complete a three-game sweep on Sunday. The Orioles won 8-0 on Friday night and also beat the Yankees 5-0 in Gausmans previous start.Time is running out for New York in its bid to snag an AL wild-card spot. If the Yankees dont start hitting right now, they can start thinking about 2017.You dont ever want to go through this during the course of the season, manager Joe Girardi said. So (Sundays) game is probably the most important game of the year.Gausman (7-10) allowed two hits and two walks over six innings to win his fourth straight start. He struck out eight and permitted only one runner past second base.The right-hander threw seven shutout innings in New York last Sunday and is 2-1 with an 0.80 ERA in five starts against the Yankees this season.Just trying to mx in all my pitches and keep them off balance, Gausman said. I think a lot of their guys are obviously looking for a fastball against me, so if I can throw my offspeed pitches for strikes and kind of put that thought in the back of their minds, I can have success.Zach Britton, the third Baltimore reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 40th save in 40 opportunities.The victory moved the third-place Orioles within two games of the top spot in the AL East.Sabathia (8-12) gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings. All it got him was another loss against the Orioles, the third in a row since mid-July.I didnt have much, Sabathia acknowledged. Just trying to make pitches when I had to, and I was able to do that for the most part. But it was a struggle today.The Yankees came to town with a season-high four straight series wins, but they will leave with their ninth consecutive series loss in Baltimore.Its tough, especially when CC goes out there and pitches his butt off, right fielder Aaron Judge said. If we win tomorrow, we forget about today.Gausman struck out six of the first eight batters and experienced only one difficult inning, the fourth. New York loaded the bases with one out before Starlin Castro struck out and Brian McCann hit a fly ball to left.A double and an error by Judge provided Baltimore with an unearned run in the bottom half, and Jones hit his 25th home run in the fifth.The suddenly punchless New York offense had no answer. The Yankees totaled 27 runs against Baltimore over two games last weekend before Gausman stepped to the mound.FAREWELL TO TEXMaryland native Mark Teixeira will play his final game at Camden Yards on Sunday.Teixeira was cheered as a visiting player in Baltimore until he signed as a free agent with New York in 2009. From that point, the hometown kid heard only boos.When you play a long time, it really doesnt bother you at all, Teixeira said.Besides, its not like he spurned the Orioles in 2009. They didnt have any intention of signing me. They made an offer just to say they made an offer, he said.ROSTER MOVESOrioles: LHP Kyle Lobstein cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: RHP Chad Green (2-4, 4.73) has a sprained elbow and is likely done for the season. Green will see a doctor in New York on Monday.Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (right shoulder) will have a bullpen session Sunday after throwing three times from flat ground during the week. Tillman (15-5, 3.76) last pitched on Aug. 20.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Michael Pineda (6-11, 5.12) starts the series finale Sunday. Hes winless in his last four starts.Orioles: LHP Wade Miley (8-11, 5.43) returns to the mound coming off his longest start (seven innings, three earned runs) since joining Baltimore at the trade deadline.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman turned to another sport to describe the enormity of the Boston Red Soxs acquisition of All-Star left-hander?Chris Sale.Boston is the Golden State Warriors of baseball now, Cashman said Tuesday at baseballs winter meetings. Theyve got their Durant and Green and Thompson and Curry.Cashman spoke to New York reporters in a cramped hotel room, while 16 floors down at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, Boston GM Dave Dombrowski had most of the rest of the baseball media listening to his reason for acquiring Sale for a four-prospect package headed by Yoan Moncada.While Cashman spoke with the White Sox about Sale, he never made a serious run at the lefty, despite the Yankees need for starting pitching. Cashmans reasoning is the Yankees are not in position to give up their top prospects at this point to add what he described as a finishing piece in Sale.It is not a deal that we should be doing at this moment in time, but were going to get to the point where that is a deal that we will be in play on, Cashman said. But it is a timing thing.Cashman said he has offers out for closers?Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen. Cashman has made clear that Chapman is the teams first choice because, unlike Jansen, Chapman would not cost the Yankees the 17th pick in the draft as compensation. Clearance NFL Jerseys. Chapman told ESPNs Marly Rivera he would like a six-year contract. Cashman declined to say how long the term is on either of the two offers.As for his team, which has played in only one playoff game in the past four years, Cashman said the Yankees are not in the Red Soxs zip code at this point.If it is the NBA, were in the pack of contenders looking to take Golden State down, he said.Years ago, when George Steinbrenner owned and ran the Yankees, the team might counter a move by its rivals. Not at this juncture.I dont think we react, Cashman said. I dont think we are emotional. We have a game plan that were going to continue and stay diligent and determined with and I think it will serve us well over time.Cashman said his Warriors comment wasnt designed to put even more pressure on Boston.I want our roster to put pressure on the Red Sox, Cashman said. I would think the expectation on the Red Sox is sky high. Im not doing that. When you are getting the collection of talent that they have that is going to come with the territory when you are in a big market. That has nothing to do with me.
