Game 62: Yankees (31-30) at Royals (30-32)


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Here's the lineup the New York Yankees will start against the Kansas City Royals today in hopes of taking the third game of this four-game series.

Brett Gardner, LF

Derek Jeter, SS

Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

Carlos Beltran, DH

Brian McCann, C

Yangervis Solarte, 3B

Ichiro Suzuki, RF

Brian Roberts, 2B

Kelly Johnson, 1B

Hiroki Kuroda, P

NOTES: Skies were overcast and gray 90 minutes before the first pitch but forecasters insisted there would be no rain until late tonight. But the wet stuff could keep going right into Tuesday, which could cause big trouble for Monday night's finale of the series. The Yankees fly to Seattle for a night game on Tuesday with the Mariners, and the last thing they'd need would be a long delay on Monday night.
