Yankees stack Game 3 lineup with lefties against O's Miguel Gonzalez

Yankees manager Joe Girardi just posted his lineup for Game 3 against the Baltimore Orioles, with 28-year-old rookie right-hander Miguel Gonzalez starting for the O's.

1. Derek Jeter - SS
2. Ichiro Suzuki* - LF
3. Alex Rodriguez - DH
4. Robinson Cano* - 2B
5. Nick Swisher# - RF
6. Mark Teixeira# - 1B
7. Curtis Granderson* - LF
8. Russell Martin - C
9. Eric Chavez* - 3B

Hiroki Kuroda - SP

Gonzalez obviously has a tough chore, pitching against all those switch- and left-handed hitters in Yankee Stadium, with that famously short porch beyond right field.

This is obviously the biggest game of Gonzalez's young career, and you can't help feeling sorry for him, just a little. Unless he pitches brilliantly!
