Today’s Orioles – Yankees Lineups

July 22, 2009 |

The Orioles and Yankees will be back on the field early with this afternoon’s 1:05pm first pitch at the new Yankee Stadium.  With a motor-coach full of WNST listeners and the Nasty one himself in attendance, the O’s will attempt to avoid the series sweep and improve upon their 1-13 record against A.L. East opponents away from Baltimore.  After the game they’ll leave New York City to continue and conclude their current 9-game roadtrip with three against the Red Sox at Fenway over the weekend.

A pair of righty’s will take the mound as the O’s will send out Jason Berken, and his 1-7 record and 6.44 ERA,  to counter the Yankees’ A.J. Burnett, who owns an 8-1 record in ten career starts against the Orioles.

Here are the day’s starting lineups:


Brian Roberts – 2B
Adam Jones – CF
Nick Markakis – RF
Aubrey Huff – 1B
Ty Wigginton – 3B
Luke Scott – DH
Gregg Zaun – C
Felix Pie – LF
Robert Andino – SS


Derek Jeter – SS
Johnny Damon – LF
Mark Teixeira – 1B
Alex Rodriguez – 3B
Hideki Matsui – DH
Jorge Posada – C
Robinson Cano – 2B
Nick Swisher – RF
Brett Gardner – CF
