5 Comments

Here’s the Yankees’ lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS tonight against Cliff Lee:

1. Derek Jeter, SS
2. Nick Swisher, RF
3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
5. Robinson Cano, 2B
6. Marcus Thames, DH
7. Jorge Posada, C
8. Curtis Granderson, CF
9. Brett Gardner, LF

New York has faced a left-handed starting pitcher in three games this postseason (Francisco Liriano, Brian Duensing, C.J. Wilson) and the Yankees have used that same lineup and batting order in each game.  So far they’ve hit .261 with a .337 on-base percentage and .420 slugging percentage versus playoff southpaws.
