Game 44: Dickey vs. Eovaldi

Tonight begins a stretch of twenty games in twenty days (thanks to a make-up game against the Tigers on June 2). Twelve of those twenty games are against AL East opponents, including six against the Blue Jays, and three apiece against the Rays and Orioles. So it goes.

Here's tonight's lineup:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Brett Gardner, LF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Carlos Beltran, DH
  5. Dustin Ackley, RF
  6. Starlin Castro, 2B
  7. Chase Headley, 3B
  8. Didi Gregorius, SS
  9. Austin Romine, C

Nathan Eovaldi will face the middling Blue Jays offense, while the Yankees get to deal with the knuckleballing R.A. Dickey. And, for those who may be curious, Alex Rodriguez will be playing with the Trenton Thunder tonight as he works his way back from injury.
