7:10 p.m. in Baltimore on Thursday *

* If the Yankees lose tonight and the Orioles win, the tiebreaker game in Baltimore will begin at 7:10 p.m. on Thursday.

* If the Yankees were to lose that game and end up in a wild card on Friday, the game time in the Bronx would begin at 8:37 p.m.

Of course, the Yankees could make it easy on themselves by just winning tonight and then going to face the winner of the wild card game. That would start on Sunday in the wild card winner's ballpark.
