Tigers-Yankees series preview

Johnny Damon and Austin Jackson make their season debuts in Yankee Stadium tonight, as the Tigers are in town for a four-game series.

For a check-in on all the ex-Yankees, check out my post earlier today for a complete update.

Head to Head:
The Yankees lost three out of four to the Tigers back in May and this week marks their final matchup of the season.

Pitching Matchups:

Date: Tigers starters Yankees starters
Mon., 7:05 p.m. Max Scherzer (7-9, 4.03) J. Vazquez (9-8, 4.90)
Tues., 7:05 p.m. J. Verlander (13-7, 3.72) CC Sabathia (15-5, 3.14)
Wed., 7:05 p.m. J. Bonderman (6-8, 5.16) D. Moseley (2-2, 4.41)
Thurs., 1:05 p.m. Rick Porcello (5-10, 5.53) Phil Hughes (14-5, 3.94)

Lineup Note: Both catchers are in the lineup tonight, leaving Lance Berkman on the bench.

The Yankees will win three out of four to even the season series. Tonight’s matchup will be tough, but I give the edge to the Yanks in the next three.
