I’m excited for the game tonight, and I want to send out a quick reminder that since it is in Texas, the game starts at 8:05pm. Its amazing how you can have a bad day at work, get home, do some quick blogging about the Yankees and suddenly its not so bad anymore.
Anyways, tonight’s lineup:
Derek Jeter SS
Johnny Damon LF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Hideki Matsui DH
Nick Swisher RF
Brett Gardner CF
Kevin Cash C
Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett (2-2, 5.28 ERA)
Yankees go into the game with a franchise record 13 game errorless streak.
Captain Jeets leads the AL in All-Star Voting (see post below) and is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak.
Mark Teixeira has hit safely in nine straight.
Robinson Cano has not struck out in 15 games.
AJ Burnett is riding a seven-game winless streak in his last seven starts. Ouch. Last year, Burnett pitched twice at Ranger Park and was 1-0 with a 6.35 ERA. Hope he can turn it around…
