Game 18: Yanks @ Red Sox, 4/26/09

The Yankees try to avert the sweep in Fenway, with Lefty (2-0, 2.53 ERA) taking the hill against Masterson (1-0, 3.18 ERA).  As per His Abeness, the lineups are below.  According to Abraham, JD is unfortunately out of the lineup:

Johnny Damon is out of the lineup with a sore right shoulder, a sore knee and a sore back. Girardi said he hopes Damon will be available tomorrow.

That’s too bad, since he’s 9 for his last 21 (.429) with 4 runs, 2 HR, and 4 RBI, and in the process raised his average from .256 to .317.  Clearly, after the extra innings on Wednesday and Friday, and yesterday’s pummeling of the pitching, Lefty needs to be good and go deep in the game.

Move back to two above .500, guys.  Let’s Go, Yankees!
