Yanks Take on Boston at Stadium Tonight

Via Alex Rodriguez Page on Facebook
My spirits have been somewhat low since Alex Rodriguez went down with his broken hand on Tuesday. Thankfully, a series against the Boston Red Sox is just what I need to set my mood back in order. The Yankees open up a 3-gamer against Beantown tonight; here is the starting lineup:

1 - Derek Jeter, SS
2 - Curtis Granderson, CF
3 - Robinson Cano, 2B
4 - Mark Teixeira, 1B
5 - Raul Ibanez, LF
6 - Andrew Jones, DH
7 - Eric Chavez, 3B
8 - Ichiro Suzuki, RF
9 - Russell Martin, C

Phil Hughes gets the start against right-hander Aaron Cook, who is 2-3 with a 3.50 in 6 starts. Hughes' last start against the Red Sox resulted in a loss; the Yankees' only loss against Boston this year. Look for a strong outing from him, and look for the stadium crowd to go nuts when Ichiro's name is announced.
