Regular Season Game 9-Angels at Yankees

The New York Yankees take on the Anaheim Angels from Yankee Stadium tonight at 7:00PM. This game is the rubber game of their 3 game series. The Yankees won the first one by the score of 7-5 and the Angels won yesterdays game by the score of 5-3. Phil Hughes is making his season debut opposite Scott Kazmir who is also making his season debut. Here are some pregame notes and the lineup. The Yankees have scored 3 or more runs in all of their games this season. Today is Jackie Robinson day across baseball. His family will be at the game for a pregame ceremony. Mariano Rivera is the last player wearing the number as it was retired across baseball in 1997. The Yankees have not comitted a error in their last 6 games. I think their defense is improved from last year, their infield is arguably the best in baseball and now their outfield is solid as well. Jorge Posada needs 2 more hits to reach 15oo on his career. Yankees Lineup: Jeter(SS) Swisher(RF) Teixeira(1B) Rodriguez(3B) Cano(2B) Posada(C) Thames(DH) Granderson(CF) Winn(LF) This is a new look lineup as Winn gets his first start and Swisher is batting second for the first time. Marcus Thames will face a lefty again which is interesting.
