Game 57: Kuroda vs Kazmir

Welcome to the game thread. Tonight the Yankees welcome the Oakland Athletics to town and I'm hoping it's not a really ugly three-game sweep, unless of course it's the Yankees that do the sweeping. Here are the lineups: A's Crisp CF Jaso C Donaldson 3B Moss DH Cespedes LF Lowrie SS Callaspo 1B Gentry RF Sogard 2B

YANKEES Gardner LF Jeter DH Ellsbury CF Teixeira 1B Solarte 2B Soriano RF Sizemore 3B Murphy C Ryan SS

Pitching matchup is Hiroki Kuroda vs Scott Kazmir.

The weather is a little iffy right now with rain in the forecast. If the game is delayed, we'll let you know.

UPDATE 7:00 PM: Start time is delayed. Not sure when they're looking to get things underway though. We'll keep you posted.
