TIME/TV: 7:07 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: As one Yankee said over the weekend, Rogers Centre looks weird when the roof is open. That said, I like that there’s the option for open or closed. All dome ballparks look weird when the roof is closed.

UMPIRES: HP Bob Davidson, 1B Quinn Wolcott, 2B James Hoye, 3B Jim

HIT PARADE: On Monday, the trio of SS Derek Jeter (3,308 career hits entering that game) 3B Alex Rodriguez (2,919) and RF Ichiro Suzuki (2,725), were all in the Yankees’ starting lineup. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the three combined for the second-highest total of hits by three starting teammates all time (8,952), trailing only Ty Cobb, Eddie Collins and Zack Wheat of the 1927 Philadelphia Athletics, who combined for a total of 10,121 hits entering the last game they started together. The two sets of three are the only teammate trios in baseball history to start a game together with each player having at least 2,500 career hits.

FIELD OF DREAMS: Today the Yankees and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. host the second annual “Borough President’s Cup” Little League championship at Yankee Stadium. To compete for the “Borough President’s Cup,” players had to meet a set of requirements unrelated to their performance on the field, including at least a B-average in school, 90 percent or greater school attendance and a demonstrated commitment to community service.

UPDATE, 7:31 p.m.: Still no word on the status of Cano. He’s obviously out of the game after the HBP in the hand. I assume X-rays are taking place now.
