YANKEES (64-58)
Damon DH
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
A. Rodriguez 3B
Giambi 1B
Nady LF
Cano 2B
I. Rodriguez C
Gardner CF
Ponson RHP

Sidney Ponson (7-3, 4.27) vs. the Kansas City hitters.

Zack Greinke (9-8, 4.09) vs. the New York hitters.

Notes: Thanks to Brian Heyman for calling in the lineup. … The Yankees have lost 13 of their last 19 games. Take away that eight-game win streak after the All-Star break and they’re two games under .500 for the season. … Ponson is 3-2, 4.72 in eight starts as a Yankee.

ROYAL FLUSH: The Yankees are 3-5 against the Royals this season with two games to go.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES: The Yankees are on a pace to score 774 runs. They scored 968 last season. Oh, Kevin Long was the hiting coach last season.

I’m off today and will be away for most of the afternoon. Enjoy the game.
