Game 41: Hopefully this one won’t be over by 7:20

I was at last night’s game and it was not a fun time. So hopefully tonight will be better for everyone.

It would be nice if Andy Pettitte could keep Raul Ibanez in the ballpark and it would also be nice if the Yankees didn’t find themselves in too deep a hole to dig out of before they even come to bat.

Here are your lineups:

MARINERS
Saunders CF
Bay LF
Seager 3B
Morales 1B
Morse RF
Ibanez DH
Montero C
Ackley 2B
Ryan SS

Noesi P

Aaron Harang was supposed to start this one for the Mariners but he has a stiff back, or an ERA north of 7.

YANKEES
Gardner CF
Nix SS
Cano 2B
Wells LF
Overbay 1B
Granderson DH
Adams 3B
Ichiro RF
Stewart C

Pettitte P

Yes, Jayson Nix is the number two hitter. You’re not seeing things.

Go Yanks!
