Here are the lineups, via Pete Abraham (LoHud):
Cabrera RF LF
Pitching: RHP Chad Gaudin (1-0, 3.71).
Pitching: RHP Luke Hochevar (7-11, 5.98).
TIME/TV: 7:05, YES.
Obviously, after clinching both the division and the best record in the American League, the Yankees are prepared to give some of their regulars a day off. Despite the missing star power, it’ll be fun to watch this lineup work against Luke Hochevar (who has good stuff).
We’re likely in for a long night as a rain delay seems inevitable. I’ll keep you posted, though.
UPDATE – Johnny Damon has been scratched due to the rain. Shelley Duncan gets a chance in RF and Melky moves to LF. Lineups are amended (sorry, PA).
UPDATE – The game is obviously delayed. No word yet on a start time.
UPDATE – First pitch is at 8:55.
