Yankees at Jays

The Yankees will try and bounce back from yesterday's loss and start a new win streak. Andy Pettitte will be on the mound this afternoon at 1:00PM on the YES network. Here are a couple of notes and the lineup via the Lohud Yankees Blog, everyone enjoy their long Labor Day weekend. The Yankees remain 7 1/2 ahead of Boston for first place in the AL East but are now 6 games ahead of the Angels for homefield as the Angels gained a game yesterday. Derek Jeter is back today and is in a 3 for 17 slump, he needs 9 more hits to break Lou Gehrig's record so it looks like he will do that at home unless he goes crazy the next 2 days. Andy Pettitte is 4-1 with a 2.56 era since the break, in 59 2/3 innings he has allowed 45 hits and struck out 62. Mo threw 16 pitches in the pen and looked good according to Peter Abraham, we will find out more later. Josh Towers was called up and will serve as a long man I am sure with the bullpen taxed from the last two days and Mitre pitching tomorrow and then a DH on Monday. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Swisher(1B) Tex(DH) A-rod(3B) Posada(C) Cano(2B) Hairston(LF) Cabrera(CF) Hinske(RF)
