Yankees game 114 lineup: 8/9/13

The last time Alex Rodriguez set foot in Yankee Stadium against the Tigers, he was benched in favor of Eric Chavez. Now, he returns nearly a year later – back at third base.

It seems as if it’s now or never for the Yankees, who are just one game above .500 coming into tonight’s game. Ivan Nova looks to continue his recent success, facing off against New Jersey native Rick Porcello. Check out our full game preview here.

Ever since my parents bought me a Paul O'Neill shirt at my first Yankees game back in 1994 I've been a diehard fan. I graduated from Springfield College in Springfield, Mass., in 2011 with a degree in Communications/Sports Journalism, so writing about the Yankees has always been a passion of mine.
