The six-game homestand to open the second half has been a success so far, pretty much like every homestand or road trip these days. The Yankees will wrap up their three-game set against the Blue Jays this afternoon and hopefully finish off the sweep before heading out west for a seven-game trip through Oakland and Seattle. The weather in the Bronx isn’t supposed to be great, so there’s a chance we may have a rain delay at some point. Here’s the starting nine…
DH Derek Jeter
RF Nick Swisher
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
2B Robinson Cano
LF Andruw Jones
SS Jayson Nix
C Russell Martin
CF Dewayne Wise
RHP Hiroki Kuroda
