Tim Britton here for the series (and season) finale between the Yankees and Orioles. New York is 13-4 against Baltimore this season, so a win today would give the Yanks their best record against the O’s since 1985, when they went 12-1. A loss, and they’d equal last year’s 13-5 mark.
The big news, of course, is Andy Pettitte taking the hill for the first time in two months and a day, hoping to show off the form that made him an All-Star earlier this year.
Here are Sunday’s lineups:
Brett Gardner LF, Derek Jeter SS, Lance Berkman 1B, Robinson Cano 2B, Nick Swisher RF, Jorge Posada C, Curtis Granderson CF, Austin Kearns RF, Ramiro Pena 3B
LHP Andy Pettitte (11-2, 2.88 ERA)
Brian Roberts 2B, Robert Andino 3B, Nick Markakis RF, Adam Jones CF, Jake Fox DH, Ty Wigginton 1B, Corey Patterson LF, Matt Wieters C, Cesar Izturis SS
RHP Chris Tillman (1-4, 6.32 ERA)
