Yanks at Oakland

The New York Yankees will try and end their 2 game losing streak. CC Sabathia takes the mound back home, he goes to Oakland here he has season tickets to the Raiders games and says that he won't give them up at least going to a couple of games and then giving the rest to friends. Here are the pregame notes and lineup from Peter Abraham. The Yankees have scored 3 runs on 13 hits in their last 18 innings. The Yankees lost three straight this year in Anaheim and also in Chicago. CC is 1-4 with a 7.12 era career in Oakland. He has 8 career starts at the Oakland Coliseum. Derek Jeter is 9 for 20 on the roadtrip with 5 rbi's. He is now batting 327. Jeter is batting 358 for his career in Oakland. Nick Swisher has reached base safely in 26 straight games. He once did it in 36 straight for Oakland in 2006. Robinson Cano is a 365 hitter with no one on base but 203 when there are runners in scoring position. Vinny Mazzaro who is from NJ pitched against the Yanks on July 23 and gave up 6 runs on 8 hits in 4 1/3 innings. Matsui is back and feels better, Gardner won't be back as quick as thought. He needs to keep the splint on for another week. Sergio Mitre will work out of the pen until he starts again. Joe Girardi claimed that Damaso Marte may be activated on Friday which is interesting since it seems the Yanks want nothing to do with him but he is under contract for this year and I believe next also. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Damon(LF) Tex(1B) A-rod(3B) Matsui(DH) Posada(C) Cano(2B) Swisher(RF) Cabrera(CF)
