Game 76: Yankees (39-36) @ Jays (43-35)

TORONTO -- As expected, Derek Jeter is back in the lineup as the Yankees try to snap their three-game losing streak against left-hander Mark Buehrle, who has not beaten them since 2004.

Here's tonight's Yankees lineup:

Brett Gardner LF

Derek Jeter SS

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Mark Teixeira 1B

Alfonso Soriano RF

Carlos Beltran DH

Brian McCann C

Brian Roberts 2B

Yangervis Solarte 3B

NOTES: Once again, Joe Girardi disdains the use of Ichiro Suzuki against Buehrle, who he has hit .421 against in his career with 24 hits in 57 at-bats. Girardi cited Soriano's RBI single off Buehrle last week as his reason for starting him over Ichiro, and also mentioned wanting to keep Ichiro's legs fresh. Soriano is a lifetime .208 hitter vs. Buehrle (10-for-48 with 11 Ks).
