Finally, the last day of interleague play this season.

Changes in the lineup today include Jeter moving down to the #3 hole while Bobby Abreu gets the day off and Kevin Thompson gets the start in RF.

Mike Mussina needs to take one for the team and eat some innings after the bullpen took one on the chin yesterday in another disappointing loss.  Moose pitched well in his lone career start against the Giants (1-0, 1.50), while Noah Lowry faces the Yankees for the first time.
