PREGAME NOTES:

  • Since the Yanks' 7-game win streak back in mid-June, they are just 4-6 over their last 10 games against some pretty mediocre competition (CIN, PIT, NYM, and TEX).
  • Yanks are 4-1 in games Joba Chamberlain he has started.
  • Derek Jeter is just getting the night off tonight and Brett Gardner has been slotted to the #2 hole.
  • Kevin Millwood is a lifetime 1-4, 4.82 ERA, 1.34 WHIP in 6 starts against the Yanks. He is 1-4, 5.25 ERA, 1.88 WHIP in 8 road starts on the season.
    Chamberlain has never faced the Rangers. He is 1-0, 1.80 ERA, 1.40 WHIP in 5 starts on the season.
  • Rangers' hitters vs. Chamberlain can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Millwood can be viewed here.
  • Chad Jennings notes that Ian Kennedy is likely to start on Thursday for Scranton and Alan Horne's arm/shoulder trouble is not nearly as serious as initially feared after coming out early in his last start over the weekend.
