The Yankees have won nine straight against the Oakland Athletics and today they will not only go for their tenth straight, but they will also for a sweep today against young gun south paw Gio Gonzalez.  Gonzalez is 5-2 with a 2.17 ERA and a 3.29 FIP and has struck out more than nine per nine innings.  Sure it seems intimidating, but so did the last two games so you never know.  Jorge Posada will once again sit out against a lefty and Brett Gardner will get a day off as well.  Here’s the lineup:

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Curtis Granderson, CF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Alex Rodriguez, DH
  5. Robinson Cano, 2B
  6. Nick Swisher, RF
  7. Russell Martin, C
  8. Andruw Jones, LF
  9. Eduardo Nunez, 3B

And it will be AJ Burnett on the hill for the Yankees today.  We have a weird start time at 3:35 and it can be seen on the YES network.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
