Game 116: Yankees at Mariners

Last night the Mariners fell to the hand of the Yankees Hideki Matsui and CC Sabathia. Matsui went 4-5 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI’s, and Sabathia went 8 innings allowing 1 run on 3 hits. Anyway, tonight the fun continues as the Yankees play the second game of this series at 10:10pm eastern time. Here is the starting lineup that will face Ryan Rowland-Smith:

SS Derek Jeter

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

DH Hideki Matsui

C Jorge Posada

2B Robinson Cano

RF Nick Swisher

3B Jerry Hairston Jr.

CF Melky Cabrera

And on the mound, Andy Pettitte

I’m no doctor, but…

Can a person really get back spasms from being hit on the elbow with a baseball? Well supposedly that is what A-Rod has and that is why he is not playing tonight. Okay, whatever, I really don’t care if the spasms are from the hit by pitch.

Make up your mind already

Remember when the plan was to have Mitre pitch Saturday and then Gaudin on Sunday? Well, supposedly that is out. Now the Yankees plan to have Joba Chamberlain pitch on Sunday, and Gaudin start on Wednesday, with Joba’s next start not coming until August 25.

  1. The Yankees won 4-2 with Tex message hitting the go ahead home run in the top of the ninth inning with Mo getting his 34th save of the season!! Now the Yankees are 73-43 this season!! Now Brian Bruney pitch another scoreless inning again yesterday night against the Seattle Mariners while Phil Hughes got the win pitching the eighth!!!
