(I can't hear the name 'Feldman' without thinking of this.)
Tonight's matchup will be Andy Pettitte vs. Scott Feldman.
Career-wise, Feldman is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA against the Yanks. He faced us twice last year and pitched great: three earned runs in 12.2 innings.
Pettitte has struggled against the Rangers, earning a 5.50 ERA in 20 career starts. In his most recent game (August of '08), he allowed five runs in five innings.
Who's hot (over the last seven days)?
Nick Swisher looks to be starting a new hot streak: .385/.471/.769.
Derek Jeter's also killing the ball: .524/.583/.571.
The dynamic duo of Melky and Cano are sliding. .227/.227/.227 for Cano and .143/.333/.143 for Melky (though he had just nine PA).
