Game 34: Put Up or Shut Up

New, comments

The Yankees are trying to avoid losing only their second series of the year, and they have their ace on the mound.

There's a lot of talk about how much the injury bug has sapped the strength from the Yankee roster: Park, Aceves, Johnson, Posada, now Swisher is down, too.

But these are the adversities that good teams overcome. The '09 Yankees went a month without their best slugger, lost and eventually released a two time 19 game winner, and watched their fifth starter struggle and fail.

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Justin Verlander 3-2 7 7 0 0 0 0 42.0 35 22 21 3 16 42 4.50 1.21

Verlander's been as good as ever, striking out a batter per inning, and holding down baserunners.

A win today earns a series split. That's what the Yanks have to get.
