Game 42: World Champions come into town

Here is tonight’s lineup:
SS Derek Jeter
LF Johnny Damon
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
DH Hideki Matsui
RF Nick Swisher
2B Robinson Cano
CF Melky Cabrera
C Kevin Cash
SP AJ Burnett

Chien-Ming Wang was activated before tonight’s game. I guess the Yanks are just playing it safe just in vas Joba can’t make his next start. Also, he was put in the pen for now because Aceves, Bruney, and Mariano are unavailible. Aceves because he pitched yesterday, Bruney is feeling some pain (MRI negative, but still scary), and Mariano because he has pitched a lot lately. Jonathan Albaladejo was optioned down to Scranton.

This is a big test for the Yankees playing the WS champs. If they can win 2 out of 3, that would be great! However, tonight isn’t looking good, 5-0 Phils in the top of the 5th.

  1. A.J. Burnett stunk!! A.J. Burnett gave up three home runs to Jayson Werth, Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz!! The Yankees lost 7-3 and Raul Ibanez hit a home run off Chien-Ming Wang!! Let go Mets beat the Boston Red Sox!!
