PREGAME NOTES:

  • Brett Gardner is out of the lineup tonight against the left-hander, but Melky Cabrera and his 0-for-19 slide with horrific NL pitcher-like numbers against lefties (.196 / .296 / .293) is back in. Sigh, that makes sense.
  • Pete Abe reports that Hideki Matsui has not responded well to physical therapy and will certainly be out until after the All-Star Break, if not longer. He's also expected to need surgery at some point.
  • Jon Lester is a lifetime 0-0, 17.18 ERA, 3.00 WHIP in one start against the Yanks. He is 2-2, 4.66 ERA, 1.55 WHIP in 9 starts on the road this season.
    Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 15-6, 3.45 ERA, 1.34 WHIP in 29 games (27 starts) against the Red Sox. He is 4-0, 1.00 ERA, 0.96 WHIP over his last 4 starts.
  • Red Sox' hitters vs. Pettitte can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Lester can be viewed here.
  • BTW, Ian Kennedy makes his return to Scranton tonight and will start against Lehigh Valley (Phillies). He will be limited to about 90 pitches.
