Yankees go for the sweep

The Yankees have won the first two games of this series 12-4.  They will go for the sweep today at 1:00.  Brian Gordon just picked up from AAA Lehigh Valley in the Phillies system will start today.  Here are some notes and the lineup.
Yankees Lineup:Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Andruw Jones, Jorge Posada, Russell Martin, Eduardo Nunez, Ramiro Pena.

Lance Pendleton was optioned back to AAA Scranton to make room for Gordon.
According to Elias last night was only the second time in Yankees history that every infielder hit a homerun.  1939 was the only other time.
Tex and Grandy are the eighth pair of teammates in MLB history to have at least 21 homeruns through the first 66 games of the season.  This is bringing up memories of Maris and Mantle in 1961.
C.J. Wilson starts for the Rangers against Brian Gordon.  Scott Kazmir was released by the Angels, the Yankees will take a look but its doubtful they sign him.
Lou Piniella, Joe Torre and Bernie Williams will appear at their first Old Timers Day on June 26.  It should be a great day.  Enjoy afternoon baseball today on YES.
