All eyes will be on shortstop Derek Jeter, who is one hit away from passing Lou Gehrig to become the Yankees' all-time hits leader. Jeter had three hits in New York's 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night, giving him 2,721 for his career. Jeter has 267 career hits against the Orioles and is batting .262 against them this season.

Cano is batting .474 (27-for-57) with six homers, 17 RBIs and seven doubles in 15 games against the Orioles this season. Swisher hit .400 (16-for-40) in those 15 games, with five homers, 15 RBIs and 12 walks.
