Game 140: Snell vs. Pineda

Tyler Austin was the hero the Yankees needed last night, when he put an exclamation point on the nice little five game hitting streak that he has pieced together. He has 7 hits in 16 at-bats over that stretch, with 2 2B, 2 HR, and 5 RBI. It's a small sample size, and it doesn't prove much of anything - but it's always nice to see a young player heat up for a bit. And, in doing so, Austin has made a fine case to not start the game on the bench six times in an eight game stretch. 

Here's tonight's lineup:

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

The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM.
