PREGAME NOTES:

  • Joe Girardi officially announced that Sidney Ponson will pitch Game 2 of Friday's double-header against the Mets. Yuck.
  • Both Johnny Damon (foot) and Hideki Matsui (knee) remain out of the lineup and probably won't see any action in this series.
  • Bobby Abreu is a horrific 2-for-30 with RISP in the month of June.
  • Joba Chamberlain has never faced the Pirates. He is 0-0, 2.45 ERA, 1.53 WHIP in 4 starts since his conversion to the rotation.
  • Zach Duke has never faced the Yanks. He is 4-2, 3.18 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 8 starts at home this season.
