Scouting Report:
Orioles Against the Blue Jays in his last start, Waters spun the best outing of his young career. The 28-year-old rookie allowed just four hits in his first shutout. With the help of his strong sinker, accompanied with a side-arm delivery that he occasionally mixed in to surprise Toronto's hitters, the left-hander did not allow a runner to reach second base until the eighth inning. Waters also did not face more than four batters in any one inning. By the end of the game, his season ERA plummeted almost a full run, from 5.73 to 4.75.

Yankees: In his final tuneup before he takes the mound for the last game at Yankee Stadium, Pettitte picked up a career-high fifth straight loss Tuesday against the White Sox. One inning spoiled the outing as he gave up three runs in the fourth and four earned runs total, striking out four. He recorded three walks, one intentional, through his six innings, and one forced in a run as the bases were loaded. Pettitte will look for just his second win since July 31 on Sunday. He is 2-0 with a 1.32 ERA in two starts against Baltimore this season.
