"I'm just going with the hot hand," Girardi said.
Wells is 3-for-15 on the road trip. He did have the big two-run double during the eighth Wednesday. Ichiro entered 3-for-23 on the trip.
Logan last pitched on Sept. 6th in Boston. He has a bone spur on his left elbow that will need cleaning up this offseason.
• Girardi said that it is unlikely he would use Mariano Rivera for a six-out save, but he will not hesitate to put him in the eighth again.
&bulll; Giardi has been given no indication yet that Alex Rodriguez will be able to play third when the Yankees play at home on Friday.
• Brett Gardner (oblique) is not much closer to coming back, but it doesn't sound like he would be available as a pinch-runner until the final weekend in Houston, at the earliest.
• Interesting Rivera fact of the day: Girardi said that he doesn't fully warm-up before he comes in relief, like most guys. Instead, Rivera uses his eight pitches from the game mound as his final warm-up pitches. Other pitchers, Girardi said, are already fully warmed up when they arrive, but use the extra pitches to become accustomed to the mound.
• Pitching matchups vs. the Giants; CC Sabathia (13-13, 4.90) vs. Tim Lincecum (10-13, 4.40); Saturday, Ivan Nova (8-5, 3.36) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (3-5, 5.73); Sunday, Andy Pettitte (10-10, 3.93) vs. Yusmeiro Petit (4-0, 3.08).
