Yankees at Rays

The New York Yankees take on the Tampa Bay Rays in game 2 of this 3 game series at 7:10 on MY9. Here are the pregame notes and lineup from Peter Abraham of the Journal News and Lohud Yankees Blog. The Yankees are 16-11 against the Rays the last 2 seasons. If the Yankees win tonight that would be 9 of their last 10 series. CC Sabathia is 3-1 with a 2.92 era in his last 4 starts. He is 2-0 since the break, allowing three earned runs over 14 innings. The Big guy is 7-1 with a 2.63 era in 12 career starts against the Rays. He had a no decision against them on June 6th allowing 5 runs in 8 innings in what turned out to be a 9-7 loss at Yankee stadium. Carl Crawford leads the majors with 48 steals. He has 350 for his career. Melky Cabrera is heating up going 7 for his last 12 with 5 walks in his last 4 games. The Yankees are 9-3 in their last 12 road games. Robinson Cano is a career 324 hitter against Tampa Bay. Derek Jeter has hit safely in 7 straight. He is 9 of 18 in his last 4 games with 6 rbi's and 5 runs scored. Jeter is 5th in the AL at 325 and 5th in OBP at 402. Tonight is the 1,00th game of Mark Teixeira's career. Big Tex and Jorge Posada are both 8 for their last 22. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Damon(LF) Tex(1B) A-rod(3B) Matsui(DH) Posada(C) Cano(2B) Swisher(RF) Cabrera(CF) Alfredo Aceves is tired and will be out again so there doesn't seem to be a roster move but eventually they will get another OF up here and send down Albaladejo or Melancon. There is no word yet on Wang but we should know later what happened with him and Dr. Andrews. Also the rumor going around today is that the Yankees are looking at Jarrod Washburn again and can probably get him.
