2011 ALDS: Game 5 | Yankees vs. Tigers

It would seriously be a good thing to have a little more of ^^^ in tonight's Game 5.

Lineup:

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Nick Swisher RF
Jorge Posada DH
Russell Martin C
Brett Gardner LF

Pitchers:

Ivan Nova (1-0, 2.84) vs. Doug Fister (0-1, 11.57)

Pregame Notes:

— Justin Verlander will not be making an appearance in tonight’s game, much to the delight of all Yankee fans. Max Scherzer, though, is available to pitch.

— Joe Girardi has said that Mariano Rivera and Dave Robertson could both throw 35-40 pitches. Sabathia is available for possibly 2 innings.

— He also mentioned that he’d imagine A.J. Burnett has earned an ALCS start. However, he is not thinking that far ahead of things yet.

Enjoy the game.

 

2011 ALDS: Game 1 (Take 2) | Yankees vs. Tigers

Ivan Nova is making his first postseason start, as is his opponent, Doug Fister.

Lineup:

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Nick Swisher RF
Jorge Posada DH
Russell Martin C
Brett Gardner LF

Pitchers:

Ivan Nova (0-0, 0.00) vs. Doug Fister (0-0, 0.00)

Pregame Notes:

— It is currently raining at Yankee Stadium, supposedly quite hard and steady at the moment (6:50pm). Hopefully it stops sometime soon, so they can get the game in tonight. If not, the schedule for the rest of the ALDS will be pretty darn hectic, I’m sure.

— The game will pick up right where they left off last night: 1-1, bottom of the 2nd inning, no one on, no one out, except Ivan Nova and Doug Fister are replacing C.C. Sabathia and Justin Verlander, respectively.

Enjoy the game.
