Captain Jeter returns to the starting lineup tonight while Cano and Giambi are both given the night off. Gonzalez makes his first start at 2B and Moeller makes his debut behind the dish.

Tonight's pitching matchup is a rematch of Game #4 in which the Rays beat the Yanks in a 13-4 route at Yankee Stadium ten days ago.

Sonnanstine is a lifetime 2-1, 3.98 ERA in three starts against the Yankees. Kennedy is a lifetime 1-1, 6.75 ERA in two starts against the Rays.

Finally, if you haven't checked out construction photos of new Yankee Stadium on Sliding Into Home - you should. Greg always has great photos of the new yard that you can't find anywhere else and has plenty of weekly updates.
