Jobamania has never faced any of the Rangers.
Notes: Thanks to Brian Heyman for calling in the lineup. … Jeter is apparently getting a day off. Betemit has played 62 innings of shortstop in the majors since the start of the 2007 season. He came up as a shortstop, however. … The Yankees have lost three of five and six of their last 10. … The bullpen has been strong the last four games (12 10 1 1 4 8). … Joba has a 0.98 ERA in his last three starts. The Yankees are 4-1 in his starts. … The Yankees have scored five runs in their last three games, hitting 13 of 94 (.138) including 3 of 22 (.136) with RISP.
