2009 ALDS Game 3 Lineups

The Yankees have Posada back in the lineup tonight. No other changes.

SS Jeter
LF Damon
1B Teixeira
3B Rodriguez
DH Matsui
C Posada
2B Cano
RF Swisher
CF Cabrera

P Pettitte

The Twins dropped injured 3B Matt Tolbert from the roster and added Brian Buscher.

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

P Pavano

The Yankees strugged against Pavano in two starts while Pavano was a member of the Indians. Derek Jeter was 3-7, but Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher were a combined 1-11. In his career, Mark Teixeira has gone 2-6 with a home run and 5 RBI.

Joe Mauer is 4-10 with a home run and 2 RBI against Pettitte, but that's nothing compared Brendan Harris, who has gone 8-17. And Delmon Young tops that with 9-14 (.643). In fact most of the Twins lineup has a good track record against the veteran left-hander.
