A-Rod moves from third to fifth in lineup


Joe Girardi is sticking with Alex Rodriguez, but not in the third hole. Rodriguez will hit fifth and play third in Game 4 on Thursday.

Derek Jeter will lead off and serve as the Yankees' DH. There was speculation that Jeter would be forced to sit after suffering a bone bruise in his left foot, courtesy of a foul ball in Game 3. Jayson Nix will play shortstop.

Here is the full Yankees lineup for Game 4 against Baltimore's Joe Saunders:

Derek Jeter DH
Ichiro Suzuki LF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Nick Swisher RF
Russell Martin C
Curtis Granderson CF
Jayson Nix SS
