Game 133: Green vs. Bundy

Much has already been written about how the Yankees could potentially be in lead for the second Wild Card spot with a sweet this weekend. And, while that is exciting, it also glosses over the fact that both the Tigers (facing the Royals) and Astros (facing the Rangers) would have to be swept to facilitate that jump in the standings. Stranger things have happened, to be sure - but I don't think that it's terribly likely.

Here's the Yankees lineup for tonight:

  1. Brett Gardner, LF
  2. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  3. Gary Sanchez, C
  4. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  5. Didi Gregorius, SS
  6. Starlin Castro, 2B
  7. Brian McCann, DH
  8. Chase Headley, 3B
  9. Aaron Judge, RF

And here's the group that Green will be facing:

  1. Adam Jones, CF
  2. Pedro Alvarez, DH
  3. Manny Machado, 3B
  4. Chris Davis, 1B
  5. Mark Trumbo, RF
  6. Jonathan Schoop, 2B
  7. Matt Wieters, C
  8. J.J. Hardy, SS
  9. Hyun Soo Kim, LF

The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.
