Earlier Today: The Yanks and Rays play two today, and Hector Noesi will be making his first career Major League start in place of the scratched Phil Hughes this afternoon at 1:10pm. Noesi will have his work cut out for him as he gets to face James Shields, who, as I noted yesterday, has consistently been the toughest pitcher the Yankees have faced out of everyone they’ve seen these last two seasons, with the exception of perhaps Felix Hernandez.
Here’s your lineup for the day game:
