Regular Season Game 11-Rangers at Yankees

The New York Yankees will look to take their second in a row against Texas and win their 4th straight series to start the year. A.J. Burnett will be opposing Scott Feldman weather permitting of course. The Yankees won a rain shortened game last night 5-1 in 6 innings behind CC Sabathia. Here are the lineups and some game notes for todays game at 1:05PM. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Johnson(DH) Teixeira(1B) Rodriguez(3B) Cano(2B) Posada(C) Granderson(CF) Swisher(RF) Gardner(LF) Rangers Lineup: Borbon(CF) Young(3B) Hamilton(LF) Guerrero(DH) Cruz(RF) Davis(1B) Arias(2B) Teagarden(C) Andrus(SS) Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter last night became the first set of Yankees teammates to start the yr hitting safely in 10 straight games. Thanks to Elias for that information. If Joe Girardi can get a win today it will be his 200th as a Yankees manager. Today marks the 59th anniversary of the very first game legendary PA announcer Bob Sheppard worked. I am sure there will be a ceremony for him, he has been ill and not working in a couple of yrs but he watches the games and is always thought of around the ballpark. Curtis Granderson will be presented with the 2009 Marvin Miller man of the year award before todays game. Mark Teixiera will present it to him. Tex is the Yankees player association representative. The Yankees have not comitted an error in 8 straight games, they set the record with 18 straight last season. They have also scored 3 or more runs in all 10 games this season. That marks the longest they have gone since the 2000 season when that team did it in 15 straight games.
