7/26 – Yankees at Indians

Getting ready to go here at Progressive Field, where Alex Rodriguez is preparing to take his run at 600 home runs on the road. Wondering how he’s doing after last night’s hit-by-pitch in the Bronx?

“The hand’s good,” Rodriguez said. “The hand’s really good.”
So there you go. Here are the lineups for tonight’s 7:05 p.m. ET start, which can be seen on YES:

YANKEES (62-35)

Derek Jeter SS, Nick Swisher RF, Mark Teixeira 1B, Alex Rodriguez 3B, Robinson Cano, 2B Jorge Posada, DH Curtis Granderson, CF Francisco Cervelli, C Brett Gardner LF 

Javier Vazquez RHP (8-7, 4.68)


INDIANS (41-57)
Michael Brantley CF, Asdrubal Cabrera SS, Shin-Soo Choo RF, Carlos Santana C, Travis Hafner DH, Jhonny Peralta 3B, Matt LaPorta 1B, Trevor Crowe LF, Jason Donald 2B
Jake Westbrook RHP (6-6, 4.74)

MAN ON A MISSION: 3B Alex Rodriguez hit his 599th career HR in Thursday’s win vs. Kansas City, and with his next home run will become the seventh player all time to reach the 600-homer plateau…will become the second player to reach the mark as a Yankee, joining Babe Ruth.

Is batting .462 (6-for-13) with 2 doubles and 4RBI since hitting HR No. 599.


Owns 10HR in 56 career games at Progressive Field and has not homered in Cleveland since 8/11/07…has never hit a milestone HR vs. Cleveland, however, Nos. 501, 502 and 503 were off Indians pitchers…hit career HR No. 472 off  tonight’s starter Jake Westbrook.

REACHING 1,000: 2B Robinson Cano recorded his 1,000th career hit with his eighth-inning, two-run double in Sunday’s win vs. Kansas City…according to the Elias Sports Bureau, only two “homegrown” Yankees in the expansion era collected 1,000H in fewer at-bats than Cano (3,232) – Derek Jeter (3,112) and Don Mattingly (3,042)…became the sixth second baseman to collect 1,000H with the Yankees, first since Willie Randolph…Elias also notes that Cano is the first player, whose primary position is second base, to collect at least 1,000H and 100HR within his first 830 Major League games.   

ROAD WARRIORS: The Yankees tonight embark on their first road trip following the All-Star break…at 28-19 (.596), own the second-best road winning percentage in the Majors this season, behind Tampa Bay (33-18, .647)…are tied with San Diego and San Francisco for the most road wins behind the Rays…have won 10 of their last 12 games and 13 of their last 17 away from Yankee Stadium. 

THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE: The Yankees have scored a 533R this season, most in the Majors…have allowed just 405R, marking the third fewest among AL teams behind Tampa Bay (382) and Oakland (398), and eighth fewest in the Majors…the Yankees’ +128 run differential is the best in the Majors and 13 runs ahead of the next best team, Tampa Bay (+115).

Mo. Time.

If Robertson gets thru this inning holding the lead as far as I am concerned Joba has lost his setup job. This says something folks.

Like

And it’s Javy. Does this tell everyone on this board just how much Joe does NOT trust his bullpen, except Mo.? Cashman NEEDS to make a trade B4 the deadline.

Like

Well Girardi time to earn your paycheck. do you send out Vasquez or go to the pen in the 8th? If you go to the pen who??? I nominate Mo.

Maybe the yankees should pick up Westbrook the way he’s pitching tonight.

Oops. change “sin” to “win”.

Javier is starting to get hit. Maybe time to pull him for relief before the Indians get too many runs. Only down by 1 run but the way both teams are hitting tonight 1 run could be enough to sin.

Didn’t realize Kenny Lofton had been inducted into the Indians Hall of Fame this year. Makes sense here. I don’t think he should be waiting for his Monument Park day, though.

Like

They have good coffee in the press box at Progressive Field. This is a very welcome thing.

Like

Jeter really hasn’t done much lately. His batting average has plummetted and he’s not Mr. Clutch anymore. His career is probably winding down. Still a great player but not what he was in the late 90s. Hits into a lot of double plays and strikes out more than he used to.

Like

Pretty ho-hum game so far. Nothing too exciting happening. Both pitchers pitching well and little offence for either team.

Like

No one commenting yet tonight? I guess everyone is just waiting to see how the game develops. It looks like a soccer match so far.
