Phil Hughes (0-1, 5.00 ERA) vs. Daisuke Matsuzaka (2-0, 1.47 ERA)

Time: 8:05 p.m.
Radio: WCBS-AM 880, XM Radio Channel 176

Pregame concerns:
  • Hughes has never faced Boston.
  • Matsuzaka is 2-1 with a 6.12 ERA in four career starts against New York.
  • Damon is 5-13 with one home run and four RBI against Matsuzaka. That probably factored into him starting over Melky Cabrera (0-7 against Matsuzaka).
  • Posada is 5-9 with two RBI and three doubles against Matsuzaka.
  • Giambi is 3-6 with three RBI and a double against Matsuzaka.
  • Too bad Derek Jeter isn't playing. He is 4-12 with two home runs and three RBI against Matsuzaka.
