------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A.J. Burnett takes his .132 career batting average to the plate against former Oriole (and Padre, Phillie and Rocky) Rodrigo Lopez... Burnett hasn't faced the D-Backs since he was a Marlin in 2005... Lopez hasn't faced the Yanks since he was a Rocky in 2007... Arizona is allowing 5.8 runs/game, the worst in baseball (helped by Chase Field, one of the hitter-friendliest ballparks)... The Yankees are second in baseball in runs per game (5.5).
