Alex Rodriguez - 3B
Jorge Posada - C
Robinson Cano - 2B

Pregame concerns: Oritz is 10-22 with 2 HR and 7 RBI off Wang. Ramirez is 11-19 with 2 HR and 5 RBI off Wang. ... The Yankees are 1-7 in division road games this year, as noted by Peter Abraham. ... The Yankees are 10-16 on the road and the Red Sox are 18-8 at home. ... Rodriguez has 6 HR off Wakefield. Jeter has 3 HR off Wakefield.

Prediction: Wang struggles early and Wakefield shuts down the bats. Yankees lose 6-2. Dick Vitale (pictured) says the Yankees will sweep the Red Sox.

There will be no liveblog or game recap tonight. Check Yahoo! Sports or ESPN for the boxscore and game stories.

Update (last of the night) - 6:47 p.m.: Matt DeSalvo has been sent down to AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Chris Britton has been called up. Britton will then be sent down on Monday when RAWJAH CLEMENS is added to the roster. This is all from the LoHud Yankees Blog.
