Given the day of the week and the omnipresence of Bryce Harper in the minds of most every Yankees fan heading into this series, it seems prudent to keep this short and sweet. I highly recommend this FanGraphs interview with Tyler Clippard, in which he discusses the ‘closer mentality’ and other aspects of pitching in relief, and this interview with Mason Williams (which is fairly fluff-filled, but interesting nonetheless).
Onto the lineups:
|New York Yankees||Washington Nationals|
|Derek Jeter, SS||Stephen Lombardozzi, LF|
|Curtis Granderson, CF||Bryce Harper, CF|
|Mark Teixeira, 1B||Ryan Zimmerman, 3B|
|Alex Rodriguez, 3B||Adam LaRoche, 1B|
|Nick Swisher, RF||Mike Morse, RF|
|Andruw Jones, LF||Ian Desmond, SS|
|Russell Martin, C||Danny Espinosa, 2B|
|Jayson Nix, 2B||Jesus Flores, C|
|Phil Hughes, SP||Gio Gonzalez, SP|
The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., on My9 and MLB Network. Let’s go Yankees!
