Game 106-This one might actually be close

Yesterday’s doubleheader bore a resemblance to a varsity squad playing a group of little leaguers, which in MLB terms isn’t a totally unfair comparison. The Yanks are looking to improve upon their 8-1 record against the O’s this year, and have outscored them 78-28 this season. That’s a +50 run differential over just 9 games, which accounts for 1/3 of the Yankee +148 run differential on the season. Amazing. Here’s your Yankee lineup, courtesy of LoHud:

1. Gardner LF
2. Jeter SS
3. Granderson CF
4. Teixeira 1B
5. Cano DH
6. Swisher RF
7. Chavez 3B
8. Martin C
9. Nunez 2B
