Weekend Games Thread

The Yankees have alternated wins and losses since the trade deadline, which feels oddly appropriate, if not comforting. If they continue this trend, they will lose on Saturday and win on Sunday - and that makes at least some sense, considering that the probable starters are CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka, respectively.

Saturday's game is set to begin at 1:05 PM. There's rain in the forecast for the mid-to-late afternoon, though, so the back half of the game may be hindered. The aforementioned Sabathia will square-off against Corey Kluber. Here's the Yankees lineup (which was released surprisingly early):

  1. Brett Gardner, LF
  2. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Brian McCann, DH
  5. Starlin Castro, 2B
  6. Didi Gregorius, SS
  7. Gary Sanchez, C
  8. Aaron Hicks, RF
  9. Ronald Torreyes, 3B

Sunday's game also starts at 1:05 PM, with Tanaka starting for the Yankees and Carlos Carrasco for the Indians.
