Game 19: Yankees at Tigers

Yankees lineup via Peter Abraham:

SS Derek Jee-tah

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

DH Hit-Deki Matsui

2B Robinson Cano

RF Nick “the not so quick” Swisher

CF Melky “Leche” Cabrera

C Jose Molina

3B Ramiro Pena

And on the mound for the Yankees, Carsten Charles Sabathia

CC Sabathia

I guess Johnny is feeling better since that collision with the green monster. I see Jose is playing today, although I would rather him catch Hughes tomorrow. And finally, Pena is starting a third, yay!

Update 7:45
1-0 Tigers on a double + a single. Going into the bottom of the third. Verlander keeps throwing first pitch strikes, so how do the Yankees solve that? Oh yeah, swing at then until Verlander stops.

Update 9:30

Yankees lose 4-2. It looked like they could make a comeback in the 9th inning, but Jorge’s double play kind of killed it. Overall, CC pitched well but Verlander pitched better. At least it was a short game. Here is the box score.

Phil Hughes makes his MLB 2009 debut tomorow night against Edwin Jackson. You can catch the game on YES.
