2009 ALDS - Game 1 Lineups

The time for surprises are out the window. The Yankees lineup is pretty obvious.

SS Jeter
LF Damon
1B Teixeira
3B A. Rodriguez
C Posada
2B Cano
RF Swisher
CF M. Cabrera
P Sabathia

For the Twins:

CF Span
SS O. Cabrera
C Mauer
1B Cuddyer
RF Kubel
LF Young
DH Harris
3B Tolbert
2B Punto

P Duensing

The Yankees have had limited exposure to Duensing, with Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira both 1-2. No other Yankee has more than one at-bat against the rookie left-hander.

Sabathia, on the other hand, has had great success against this Twins lineup.

Span 1-3
O. Cabrera 5-33 (.152)
Mauer 5-23 (.217)
Cuddyer 11-52 (.212)
Kubel 0-2
Young 3-15 (.200)
Harris 3-15 (.200)
Tolbert no AB
Punto 6-36 (.167)

That's a combined 34-214 (.159)
