Game Thread: Rangers @ Yankees 6/25

The Yankees will host the Texas Rangers tonight in game one of a three game set between the two clubs. Hiroki Kuroda and Yu Darvish should be a pitching match up that should get even the most casual of baseball fans to tune in tonight on MLB Network. The Yankees have a short bench since they kept Ivan Nova up so it is important to get the most out of out starters and not get into pinch hitting and pinch running situations. Score early and often and let's have a good night, what do you say Yankees fans?

Here is the lineup

Brett Gardner CF
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Robinson Cano 2B
Travis Hafner DH
Lyle Overbay 1B
Zoilo Almonte LF
Jayson Nix SS
David Adams 3B
Chris Stewart C

Worth noting that since Zoilo Almonte is a switch hitter the Yankees potentially have the first six batters in their lineup batting from the left side. That is great when we are facing the right handed Yu Darvish but I guess Joe Girardi forgot that the Rangers have a bullpen as well huh?
