PREGAME NOTES:

  • Richie Sexson, making his Yankee debut tonight against the left hander - will play first base and bat fifth.
  • Billy Traber was sent back down to Scranton to make room for Sexson on the active roster and Phil Hughes was moved to the 60-day DL.
  • Get this - the Yanks have not scored more than three runs off a starting pitcher since they scored six against Pedro Martinez on June 27.
  • Greg Smith has never faced the Yanks or any of their hitters. He is 3-4, 3.86 ERA, 1.29 WHIP in 10 starts on the road this season.
  • Moose is a lifetime 17-10, 3.82 ERA, 1.20 WHIP in 34 starts against the Athletics. He is 6-5, 3.72 ERA, 1.27 WHIP in 12 starts at the Stadium this season.
