Another nice night for baseball here at the Coliseum and it looks like there will be another decent crowd. Nomar Garciaparra gets the start at first base and Tommy Everidge is the DH for the second game of the series. Bobby Crosby incurred tightness in his left calf during Monday’s game and although A’s manager Bob Geren said Crosby is day-to-day, he could come off the bench if absolutely necessary.
Geren had no new news on Justin Duchscherer, but said he’s still open to doing a six-man rotation once he gets some healthy pitchers back. He really wants to limit the innings for Trevor Cahill and Brett Anderson.
A’s — Kennedy 3B, Davis CF, Suzuki C, Hairston LF, Garciaparra 1B, Ellis 2B, Everidge DH, Sweeney RF, Pennington SS, Mazzaro P.
Yankees — Jeter SS, Damon LF, Teixeira 1B, Rodriguez 3B, Matsui DH, Posada C, Cano 2B, Swisher RF, Cabrera CF, Sabathia P.
