Yankees Game 2 Lineup: 4/3/2013

Yankees look to rebound after the Opening Day loss to the Red Sox.  Hiroki Kuroda toes the rubber in the 7:05 start time.  Girardi mixes up the roster a bit from game 1 moving up Ichiro into the 2 spot and Nunez to the 8 spot.  Youkilis is back at third while Lyle Overbay gets his first start in Pinstripes at first base.  Chris Stewart is behind the plate tonight as the catcher position will most likely be a hot hand/bat situation throughout the year.

Note:

- Six players made their Yankee debuts during Monday’s Opening Day game. This marks the most ever in a single game since the first game in Yankees history (as the Highlanders) in 1903! The Yankees players who made their Pinstripes debut were Kevin Youkilis, Vernon Wells, Ben Francisco, Travis Hafner, Lyle Overbay, and Shawn Kelley.

    Replace the backups with the starters from the DL and that’s an awesome lineup…
