Game 110: Rubber game in San Diego

Today, Phil Hughes is pitching in Petco Park a place a lot of Yankee fans wish he'd call his home stadium and who is he facing? His old friend Ian Kennedy. Remember the good old days when the Yankees future was bright and Kennedy, Hughes and Joba Chamberlain were going to be the starters for the next ten years?

Yeah...it seems like so long ago.

Anyway, the Yankees are looking to gain on the momentum of last night's win and head to Chicago on a two-game winning streak.

Here's San Diego's lineup: Everth Cabrera SS Alexi Amarista 2B Chase Headley 3B Yonder Alonso 1B Will Venable CF Chris Denorfia RF Mark Kotsay LF Nick Hundley C Ian Kennedy P

And here's the Yankee lineup: Ichiro Suzuki RF Robinson Cano 2B Alfonso Soriano LF Curtis Granderson CF Lyle Overbay 1B Eduardo Nunez SS Jayson Nix 3B Austin Romine C Phil Hughes P

As you can see Brett Gardner is not in the lineup. I'm guessing it's a day off. And Austin Romine is actually playing so Chris Stewart finally has a day off.
