Andy Pettitte goes for the coup de grace this afternoon, with the Mets reeling (lost 5 of 6) and the Yanks rolling (won 7 of 9). A Yankee win and a Rays loss (@Miami-Shields vs Sanchez) will give Yanks sole possession of 1st place for the first time this season.
Andy is 8-5 with a 3.69 ERA in 19 games facing the Mets, and his career dates back to the first interleague series of the crosstown rivals. Derek Jeter is the only other active Yankee player (Mo’s on the DL) who played in that first series back in 1997.
Here’s your lineup courtesy of Chad over at LoHud:
Derek Jeter DH
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones LF
Russell Martin C
Jayson Nix SS
Derek gets the half day off at DH, with Nix getting the start at SS. Other than that your standard lineup facing a lefty.
