Game two of the current three game set against Toronto sees Andy Pettitte on the mound, who brings five consecutive quality starts in which he has given up nine runs in 34 and 1/3 innings. Toronto counters with Shaun Marcum (2-2, 4.30, 1.10), whom the Yankess have yet to face this season. In six appearances and four starts lifetime against New York, Marcum is 1-1 against the Bombers with a 7.23 ERA.
Pete Abraham reports that Joe Torre has announced Clemens’ first start is planned for Monday in Chicago against the White Sox. That leaves the tentative starters for the Boston series as Wang, Moose, and Pettitte.
Line-ups in the extended. Comment away.
Tonight, I have tickets to the AAA game in Portland as the Beavers face the Iowa Cubs. Fortunately, I’ll be able to catch at least the first five innings or so. Here’s hoping Andy has his stuff tonight.
More from Pete:
"In two years of covering this team, I have never seen what I am looking
at now. The Yankees are taking infield before a game, including throws
from the outfield."
