Tampa Bay Rays Vs. New York Yankees: Tuesday's Starting Lineups

The Tampa Bay Rays play host to the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, in the second game of a three-game series.

Tampa Bay edged out New York in the series opener on Monday night, winning 4-3 over the Bronx Bombers. Momentum is only as good as the next day's starting pitcher in baseball, though, and Alex Cobb will have to quiet New York's offense on Tuesday night.

Both Joe Maddon and Joe Girardi have announced the starting lineups for Tuesday night, and they are as follows:

New York Yankees

SS Derek Jeter
CF Curtis Granderson
1B Nick Swisher
DH Robinson Cano
3B Alex Rodriguez
LF Raul Ibanez
2B Jayson Nix
RF Chris Dickerson
C Chris Stewart

SP Freddy Garcia

Tampa Bay Rays

LF Desmond Jennings
CF B.J. Upton
SS Ben Zobrist
DH Evan Longoria
RF Matt Joyce
3B Jeff Keppinger
1B Carlos Pena
2B Ryan Roberts
C Jose Molina

SP Alex Cobb

As expected, Evan Longoria is in Tuesday's lineup, starting at designated hitter. Longoria exited Monday's contest due to fatigue, but appears to be healthy and ready to play.
