Game 55: Keep It Rolling

The Yankees have won four straight surprisingly the first time this season and they are going for five tonight.  They will have to get by Jered Weaver to do it though, who had a great April and has cooled down quite a bit since.  Jorge Posada’s back in the lineup as the designated hitter and batting eighth and so far he hasn’t taken himself out of the lineup so that’s good.  Here’s a look at the full batting order:

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

And it will be Ivan Nova on the bump tonight.  It’s a big start for him with Hector Noesi pitching well and Carlos Silva lurking in Triple A.  We’ll see if he responds to the pressure.  This one will start a little bit after 10 (the last one for a while) and can be seen on the YES network.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
