PREGAME NOTES:

  • Dare I say it, but the Yanks are catching a break today with Berkman, Wigginton, and Matsui all getting the day off.
  • Chien-Ming Wang has never faced the Astros. He is 4-0, 2.38 ERA in 6 road starts this season.
    Roy Oswalt started the infamous combined no-hitter back in 2003 but strained his groin and came out of the game after just one inning. Oswalt is 0-3, 6.12 ERA over his last 4 starts.
  • Astros' hitters vs. Wang can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Oswalt can be viewed here.
  • Finally, check out Kevin Kernan's piece in today's NY Post on Scranton reliever, David Robertson - who is almost assuredly going to get called up to the Bronx in the coming weeks. His minor league stats are ridiculous.
