Game 14: Yankees vs. Cubs
It feels like it has been a while since we’ve been at the ballpark, with Monday’s off-day and Tuesday’s rainout. We’ll be making up for that this afternoon and evening, with a split admission day-night doubleheader scheduled between the Yankees and the Cubs.
Bundle up, because it’s cold here in New York — I mean, it’s February, let’s get to Tampa for Spring Training cold — but we’ll have baseball today in the Bronx, assuming they can get the ice off the playing field.
Here are the lineups for Game 1, with Masahiro Tanaka and Jason Hammel comprising your pitching matchup. Derek Jeter is scheduled to return to the Yankees lineup in Game 2.
Emilio Bonafacio 2B
Jason Hammel RHP (2-0, 2.63)
Brett Gardner LF
Masahiro Tanaka (1-0, 3.21)
