PREGAME NOTES

  • Tonight the Yankees will face a lefty starter for the 17th time in their last 28 games.
  • Melky Cabrera is getting the night off after going 5 for 31 over his last 9 games and his average is way down to .249.
  • Not sure I understand the Joe Girardi's logic to use Wilson Betemit (a very weak right-handed hitter) against the lefties. I know he wants to get him ABs but you would think a Northwestern grad would realize this is a bit counterproductive.
  • Ian Kennedy is a lifetime 0-1, 5.19 ERA, 2.08 WHIP in 2 starts against the Orioles, including his best outing of the season on May 22.
  • Brian Burres is a lifetime 2-2, 3.12 ERA, 1.27 WHIP in 5 starts against the Yanks.
