Game 7 Preview: Rays at Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays (3-2)
New York Yankees (3-3)
Akinori Iwamura 2B Johnny Damon LF
Carl Crawford LF Derek Jeter SS
Carlos Pena 1B Bobby Abreu RF
B.J. Upton CF Alex Rodriguez 3B
Cliff Floyd DH Hideki Matsui DH
Eric Hinske RF Robinson Cano 2B
Willy Aybar 3B Wilson Betemit 1B

Jason Bartlett SS Jose Molina C

Jason Hammel (NR) vs. Mike Mussina (0-1, 4.76 ERA)

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

Pregame concerns:
  • Upton was 4-6 with a home run and three RBI against Mussina last season.
  • Crawford was 4-6 with two RBI and three stolen bases against Mussina last season.
  • Hammel was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts at Yankee Stadium last season.
  • Damon was 3-6 with three stolen bases against Hammel last season.
  • Matsui was 2-7 with a home run and two RBI against Hammel last season.
I would have liked to see Morgan Ensberg get a shot at first base with Jason Giambi injured.
