Yankees game 139 lineup: 9/4/13

After a thrilling come from behind win last night, the Yankees go for the sweep against the White Sox! CC Sabathia gets the ball and will try to turn in a quality start. He will be opposed by Erik Johnson, who will be making his Major League debut tonight. The Yankees are currently 4-1 on their current 10-game homestand. Anything less than 8-2 would be a major disappointment, so every game is crucial at this point. New York will welcome in the Boston Red Sox starting tomorrow night for a big four-game series.

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.
