PREGAME NOTES: 

Alex Rodriguez is 0-for-10 in the series and has grounded into three double plays.

Bobby Abreu is 16-for-39 (.410) over his current nine-game hitting streak with 13 runs scored and 7 XBH.

The Yanks have scored 5 runs or more in five straight games for the first time since April.

Scott Feldman is a lifetime 1-0, 6.00 ERA, 1.83 WHIP in 2 games (one start) against the Yanks.  He is 1-1, 4.80 ERA, 1.35 WHIP in 11 games (9 starts) at home this season.

Mike Mussina is a lifetime 17-13, 3.74 ERA, 1.12 WHIP in 36 starts against the Rangers.  He is 5-1, 3.43 ERA, 1.17 WHIP in 7 starts on the road this season.

Rangers' hitters vs. Moose can be viewed here.  Yanks' hitters vs. Feldman can be viewed here.

 

PETTITTE COULD MISS NEXT START:  So says Mark Feinsand.  Hey, why not?  The Yanks rotation obviously needed another challenge anyways.

NOW PETTITTE SAYS FEINSAND IS FULL OF BS:  Okay, he didn't really say that - but he did reject the notion that he could miss his next start:

"I am fine. [Missing a start] is news to me," Pettitte said, speaking in the Yankees clubhouse before tonight's game in Texas. "I feel great. No one has ever discussed missing a start with me. I am pitching. I have not discussed missing a start with anybody."

HUGHES PITCHING FOR SCRANTON:  Phil Hughes pitches tonight for the 1st place Scranton Yankees against the hated Pawtucket Red Sox and will be limited to a 60-70 pitch count. 

You can follow the action here via MiLB and be sure to check out Chad Jennings' blog for all the details.

MELKY SITS AGAIN:  I just love typing that.  Although, it's crystal clear that Girardi's explanation of Melky getting a couple of days off simply to give others a half game off as the DH is total BS.

Good.  This move had been a long time coming.  Why Girardi had so much faith in him for three months is beyond me.
