Game 49: Yankees at Mariners

Here are the lineups for tonight’s game at Safeco Field in Seattle, as the Yankees open a three-game series against the Mariners, kicking off this three-city road trip that will also take them to Oakland and Anaheim:

YANKEES (27-21)
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Russell Martin C
Jorge Posada DH
Nick Swisher RF
Brett Gardner LF

Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP (5-3, 4.02 ERA)

MARINERS (24-25)
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Luis Rodriguez 3B
Justin Smoak 1B
Jack Cust DH
Franklin Gutierrez CF
Adam Kennedy 2B
Miguel Olivo C
Carlos Peguero LF
Brendan Ryan SS

Pitching: Michael Pineda RHP (6-2, 2.16 ERA)

First pitch: 10:10 p.m. ET, YES

Mark Teixeira homered in the first inning off Pineda, but pregame, he had nothing but high praise for the Mariners phenom as well as the arm they’ll see plenty of on Saturday, Felix Hernandez.

“They talk about the best 1-2 punch in baseball and when you face those guys two days in a row, you’ve got to be ready,” Teixeira said.

Here’s the scouting report Joe Girardi offered on Pineda: “The thing about the young man is he throws a ton of strikes. He’s around 70 percent first pitch strikes, so you’ve got to be ready to hit.”

Ok.. Why does Girardi continue to put Posada as DH.. I say leave Andruw jones there and let’s see. Andruw Jones is more a threat than posada
