Is New York Yankees are truly upset at the Baltimore Orioles for the way the scheduling

If the New York Yankees are truly upset at the Baltimore Orioles for the way the scheduling has unfolded for this series, they can treat them as rudely as they did the last time these teams met in a doubleheader.
1:35 PM ET, August 28, 2011
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland

The Yankees and Orioles are scheduled to play a day-night doubleheader Sunday depending on the weather associated with Hurricane Irene.

New York (78-51) and Baltimore (52-77) were scheduled to play twice Saturday, but the doubleheader was canceled due to the weather. The night game will be played as part of Sunday's twinbill while the afternoon game has been moved to Sept. 8.
That Sept. 8 game has infuriated the Yankees, whose request to play two games Friday was denied.

"It's silly to me. I don't understand why we didn't play a split doubleheader today," manager Joe Girardi said after the Yankees' 12-5 loss Friday night.

"Someone has to step up. And they did it all over the country. They did it in Philadelphia, they did it in Boston, they did it in Florida. Football games have been moved up, soccer games, golf has been canceled. Why we didn't play a split today, I have no idea."

The Yankees do not have another scheduled day off until Sept. 15.

"Now they want us to give up the only off day that we truly have," Girardi said. "We didn't agree to play September 8. They scheduled it, we didn't agree with it, and I really don't understand it.

"We're going to fight it."

Baltimore player representative Jeremy Guthrie defended the decision.

"It's unfortunate that it's a natural disaster, and we have to be sensitive to the needs of those who are going to be negatively affected by that," Guthrie told the Orioles' official website. "And so, we are just trying to make it work with both sides."

These teams hadn't played a doubleheader since Sept. 26, 2003, before New York swept Baltimore at home July 30. The Yankees scored 25 runs and had 35 hits on a day in which New York's Ivan Nova (13-4, 3.97 ERA) returned to the rotation.

Nova earned his first career victory over the Orioles by allowing two runs over seven innings in a 17-3 win in the nightcap.

The right-hander is scheduled to pitch the opener, and the Yankees have won his last 10 starts. He has won six straight outings to improve to 9-0 with a 3.48 ERA during that stretch.

Nova's last outing may have been his best. He gave up five hits over seven innings last Sunday in a 3-0 win at Minnesota.

The Orioles are scheduled to use left-handers Zach Britton (7-9, 4.54) in the opener and Brian Matusz (1-6, 8.92) in the nightcap.

Britton opposed Nova last month and didn't make it through the first inning, allowing nine runs. The rookie was far more effective in his first start against New York on May 18, when he allowed one unearned run in seven innings in a 4-1, 15-inning home loss.

Matusz is 2/3 with a 2.56 ERA in five career starts against the Yankees. He has posted a 11.72 ERA in losing his last six starts.

Freddy Garcia (10-7, 3.16) is scheduled to come off the 15-day disabled list and start the second game for New York. He hasn't pitched since Aug. 7 due to a lacerated right index finger, and is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in two 2011 outings against Baltimore.
