Yankees at Red Sox

The New York Yankees will take on the Boston Red Sox from Fenway Park at 4:10pm today. The game is a nationally televised game on FOX. A.J. Burnett will go up against Junichi Tazawa. The Yankees will be going for their 6th consecutive win against their arch rivals and try to push their lead in the AL East to 8 1/2 games. Here are the pregame notes and lineups via Peter Abraham and his Lohud Yankees Blog. The Yankees are 36-27 on the road. They are 9-2 in their last 11 games on the road. Derek Jeter is 16 of his last 26 and 19 of 35 on the roadtrip. He has 8 runs scored and 8 rbi's with 4 xbh. Jeter has a 8 game hitting streak and 6 straight multi hit games. Derek Jeter has gone a career long 105 plate appearances without a walk but maybe it is because he is so hot he is hitting everything. Nick Swisher has reached base safely in 29 straight games. The Yankees are 49-14 when they score first. Melky Cabrera is 6 of his last 12, this is a good sign because he was struggling and Brett Gardner still won't be back for a couple of weeks at least. Johnny Damon is out today but hopes to be back tomorrow Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Hinske(LF) Tex(1B) A-rod(3B) Matsui(DH) Posada(C) Cano(2B) Swisher(RF) Cabrera(CF) Boston Lineup: Ellsbury(CF) Pedroia(2B) Martinez(1B) Youkilis(3B) Ortiz(DH) Bay(LF) Drew(RF) Varitek(C) Gonzalez(SS)
