Game 76: Hamels vs. Sabathia

Between the rain delays (lest you forget that the start of the game was delayed for twenty minutes due to some foreboding clouds) and the game itself, last night's 9-6 loss took just under eight hours to play. Despite that, his recent injury history, and the Yankees purported commitment to giving their veterans plenty of rest, Mark Teixeira will be in the lineup for the fourth straight game - with a lefty on the mound, and Rob Refsnyder on the bench. 

Here's tonight's lineup:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Carlos Beltran, RF
  3. Alex Rodriguez, DH
  4. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  5. Starlin Castro, 2B
  6. Didi Gregorius, SS
  7. Chase Headley, 3B
  8. Aaron Hicks, LF
  9. Austin Romine, C
