Game 86: The Rays Finally Come

This may hard to believe, but this is the first time that the Rays are visiting the Bronx this season.  The Yankees went down to Tampa once for a two game set earlier in the season, but that is the only time that these two teams have met in 2011.  That means we’re going to be seeing a lot of them in second half, which should make the AL East race a little more interesting.  Also, a pre-game note, Mariano Rivera is available for tonight’s game after not being able to pitch in Cleveland.  Here’s the lineup:

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

And it will be Bartolo Colon on the bump.  The game will start a little after 7 pm and can be seen on YES and MLB Network.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
