Game 49: Eovaldi vs. Odorizzi

The Yankees could use a good start today after the awful one Michael Pineda gave them yesterday.  Nathan Eovaldi has been providing more good starts than bad this season and he has a good history against the Rays.  He'll be on the mound this afternoon with this starting lineup supporting him:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury- CF
  2. Brett Gardner- LF
  3. Starlin Castro- 2B
  4. Brian McCann- C
  5. Alex Rodriguez- DH
  6. Didi Gregorius- SS
  7. Aaron Hicks- RF
  8. Dustin Ackley- 1B
  9. Ronald Torreyes- 3B

A few pregame notes: Mark Teixeira took batting practice from both sides of the plate before the game, Carlos Beltran was left out of the lineup completely today but said he could be available to pinch hit if needed, and Joe confirmed that the team is not planning to remove Michael Pineda from the rotation at this time.
