Game 58: Rivalry Renewed

Sure the Yankees and Red Sox have played against each other in two series’ so far in 2011, but this one is different.  The feeling of summer baseball is in the air and with first place on the line and both teams playing very well, this one seems like it could be the most intense of any match-up so far.  With lefty Jon Lester toeing the rubber for the Sox, both Brett Gardner and Jorge Posada are out of the lineup.  Andruw Jones is in there playing left and he looks to continue the recent success he has found against south paws.  Here’s a look at the entire lineup for tonight:

  1. Derek Jeter, DH
  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. Andruw Jones, LF
  9. Eduardo Nunez, SS

And it will be Freddy Garcia on the bump.  Garcia will look to rebound from his last outing against Boston when he gave up seven hits and five earned runs in 6.1 innings.  The game will start at 7:05 (finally back to east coast times) and can be seen on My 9 or MLB Network.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
