Yankees @ Rangers 4/23

UPDATES: Yankees Win 7-4

Jeter sets the tone with an infield single. Extends his hit streak to 13 games and steps one step closer to Pete Rose. Yankees load the bases with 1 out, Texeira strikes out, Granderson has a 2 RBI single. Yankees lead 2-0.
Rangers start the game with 1st and 3rd and nobody out but CC induces a ground ball double play but the run scores. 2-1 Yanks.
Jeter singles to center field to get one step closer to Pete Rose. Yankees lead 2-1.
Error on Derek Jeter. End of 2. Yanks lead 2-1
Basically a 1-2-3 inning

CC Sabathia will take the hill, and hopefully we see the pitcher we know CC can and will be, as so far he hasn't been ace-like at all. The big guy has the 3rd worst ERA out of the 5 Yankee starters, which doesn't sound bad until you realize the worst two are Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes.

Eduardo Nunez doesn't sound right as the team's DH. But it really came down to either him or Raul Ibanez, and Raul's far from a sure-thing against left-handed pitchers (they are facing Derek Holland). And since Nunez isn't know for his strong defense, DHing is probably the best way to go.

Just goes to show you the importance of Brett Gardner to this team.
