Game 118: Clean SweepBy
Taking three of four from the Rangers is a pretty neat accomplishment, but the Yankees have a chance to make it a straight four-for-four series this afternoon. The pitching, starting with the David Phelps-Derek Lowe tandem on Monday and continuing with Hiroki Kuroda on Tuesday and Freddy Garcia on Wednesday has been the backbone of the three wins, and now it’s time for Ivan Nova to follow suit. He’s been struggling real bad for the last month or so, but was very good against the Blue Jays five days ago and hopefully will build off that today. Here’s the starting lineup…
RHP Ivan Nova
The weather is gorgeous here in New York following last night’s storm(s), so there won’t be any trouble getting this one in. Today’s game is scheduled to start a little after 1pm ET and can be seen on YES locally and MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.
