Not a good start to the doubleheader. The Yankees dropped the first game 2-1 and have already clinched the series loss to the Indians. All they can do now is salvage the series with a win in today’s second game and go into the four-game weekend series with the Red Sox feeling kinda sorta good about things. Here is the Indians’ lineup and here is the Yankees’ lineup for the second game:

  1. LF Brett Gardner
  2. 2B Starlin Castro
  3. DH Gary Sanchez
  4. RF Aaron Judge
  5. SS Didi Gregorius
  6. CF Aaron Hicks
  7. 1B Greg Bird
  8. 3B Ronald Torreyes
  9. C Austin Romine
    LHP Jordan Montgomery

Same weather as this afternoon, meaning pretty much perfect. The second game of the doubleheader is tentatively scheduled to begin at 4:55pm ET. YES and MLB Network will have the broadcast again. Try to enjoy the game.

Roster Move: No one was sent down for Montgomery. He is the 26th man for the doubleheader.
