Yanks Rally to Win; Game Two Lineups

Monday, September 7, 2009

I was out all afternoon so I missed this one. But here's a quick recap of what happened. CC Sabathia continued to dominate, striking out 10 batters in 7 innings. He left the game with the scored tied at one apiece. The Yankees scored 3 runs in the bottom of the eighth, courtesy of an RBI single by Posada, and two sac flys, coming from Robinson Cano and Eric Hinske. The big question on everyone's mind, however, is what did Derek Jeter do? Jeter went 0-4, so he remains 3 hits behind Lou Gehrig on the Yankees all-time hits leader list. He will be in the lineup for the second game of the day-night doubleheader...speaking of which, here are the lineups from Pete Abe's blog.

YANKEES (88-50 First Place AL East)
Jeter SS
Damon LF
Teixeira 1B
Matsui DH
Swisher RF
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF
Hairston 3B
Molina C
Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett (10-8, 4.29).

RAYS (72-65 Third Place AL East)
Iwamura 2B
Gross RF
Longoria 3B
Burrell DH
Aybar 1B
Zaun C
Upton CF
Brignac SS
Perez LF
Pitching: RHP Andy Sonnanstine (6-8, 6.62).
TIME/TV: 7:05, YES/MLB Network.

UPDATE 9:27: Quick update: Jeter has not recorded a hit at all in either game today. That always happens when players chase records. On another note, the Yankees play the longest games. It's 9:30 and it's only the 6th inning. Oh, and Tex for MVP.
