Game preview: Diamondbacks at Yankees 6/13/07

Starting pitchers

Diamondbacks (37-28)
Livan Hernandez - RHP (5-3, 3.66 ERA)

Yankees (31-31)
Mike Mussina - RHP (2-3, 5.63 ERA)

Time: 7:05 p.m.
Radio: WCBS-AM 880

Pregame concerns: Mussina is 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA against the Diamondbacks in his career (one start). He is 12-6 at home during interleague play, and 19-10 overall. ... Orlando Hudson is 6-19 against Mussina in his career with three RBIs. ... Hernandez is 0-2 with a 4.12 ERA against the Yankees in his career (three starts). ... Bobby Abreu is 18-64 with two home runs against Hernandez in his career. ... Alex Rodriguez is 6-10 with one home run and five RBIs against Hernandez. ... Jorge Posada will not start tonight because Mussina and Wil Nieves have worked well together recently.

I am writing the game preview early tonight (the lineups aren't available yet) because I'll be in attendance tonight. Hopefully it doesn't rain. If it does, it is umbrella night at the Stadium. I hope I can pass for a 21-year-old.
