Yankees set lineup for Game 2

The New York Yankees will send out a similar lineup in Game 2 to the one that exploded late against the Orioles in the first game of the American League Division Series, but they'll swap out designated hitters to face lefty Wei-Yin Chen:

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

Chen has faced the Yankees four times this year, and he's 1-2 with a 5.25 in those starts. It's probably easier to list the Yankees who haven't homered off him this year: Ichiro, Swisher, Teixeira, and Nunez have not homered off him, while the other five players in the lineup have one homer each.

Three out of the four games Chen pitched against the Yankees were at Camden Yards, too, so you can't even blame new Yankee Stadium.
