Here are the first-place Yankees’ pitching matchups for their three-game set in Arizona:
Monday: RHP AJ (6-5, 4.33) vs. RHP Rodrigo Lopez (2-6, 4.70) 10:10 p.m. EST
Tuesday: LHP Pettitte (8-2, 2.47) vs. RHP Dan Haren (7-5, 4.71) 9:40 p.m. EST
Wednesday: RHP Javy (6-5, 5.01) vs. Dontrelle Willis (1-0, 4.20) 9:40 p.m. EST
Wednesday will mark D-Train’s fourth start for the D-Bags, and his numbers aren’t great over the first three. Then again his numbers weren’t eye-popping over his nine appearances with Detroit this season. Whatever happens, let’s hope this trip to the desert goes a little better than another one that shall remain nameless (NSFW).
Have I mentioned how much I hate west coast road trips? I’ve got another gripe too: how come there’s an off day on Thursday between the D-Bags and Dodgers series, but not one Monday when the team is flying across country after playing Sunday? Oh well.
LET’S GO YANKS!!!!!!!!
