It feels like the last time the Yankees and Orioles played a meaningful series for both teams this late in the season was . . . last weekend.

But before that series, where the Orioles took two of three at Yankee Stadium, it was the 1996 ALCS, won by the Yankees in five games. Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera are the only players still active 16 seasons later.

Now onto the pitching matchups for this four-game series at Camden Yards:

Thursday, 7:05 p.m.: David Phelps (3-4, 3.13) vs. Jason Hammel (8-6, 3.54)

Friday, 7:05 p.m.: Phil Hughes (13-12, 4.18) vs. Wei-Yin Chen (12-8, 3.79)

Saturday, 7:05 p.m.: CC Sabathia (13-4, 3.42) vs. Joe Saunders (7-11, 4.26)

Sunday, 1:35 p.m.: Freddy Garcia (7-6, 5.09) vs. Zach Britton (5-1, 4.15)

All games will air on YES.
