Game 59: Snap It

The Yankees have now lost five straight games to the Red Sox and because of last night’s loss, are now tied with them for first place in the American League East.  It’s time to bare down now because it’s not too early anymore and it’s quite frankly just getting ridiculous.  Sure a few years ago they lost the first eight of the season to Boston, but that wasn’t fun or efficient either.  Anyway, Mark Texeira is back in the lineup and playing first base even with his bruised knee and Alex Rodriguez gets the half day off at designated hitter.  Russell Martin, however, is out of the lineup because of a back issue.  Here’s the full 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. Brett Gardner, LF
  8. Eduardo Nunez, 3B
  9. Francisco Cervelli, C

And it will AJ Burnett on the bump for the Yanks.  This one will start a little after seven and will be shown on YES and ESPN.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
