Yanks at Red Sox-Rivalry renewed

The Yankees are 0-5 against the Red Sox this year but they are a different team now with A-rod and Jorge Posada back in the lineup. Here are the pregame notes and lineup via Peter Abraham. The Yankees have won 19 of 25 and eight of their last 9 series. The Yankees are 9-4 in one run games and have come from behind to win 20 games which is best in baseball. Mark Teixeira has 8 homeruns in his last 14 games. Nick Swisher is 12 of his last 31 with 7 extra base hits and 8 rbi's in his last 11 games. HIdeki Matsui has tied his career high with 16 straight hitless at bats. The Yankees are 4 of thier last 34 with runners in scoring position in the last 5 games. This is what I don't like about this team, they are too inconsistant offensively. MO has pitched in 3 straight games, I wouldn't expect him to go tonight. The Yankees team era is 4.81 which is the lowest it has been since April 12th. The Yankees are 21-0 when holding opponents to 3 runs or less. A-rod makes his first trip to Boston this year. Yankees lineup: Jeter(SS) Damon(LF) Tex(1B) A-rod(3B) Cano(2B) Posada(C) Swisher(LF) Cabrera(RF) Gardner(CF)
