TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., FOX

WEATHER: Cloudy. Chance of rain later in the day, but right now it looks alright.

UMPIRES: HP Paul Nauert, 1B Doug Eddings, 2B Angel Hernandez, 3B Dana DeMuth

HALF AND HALF: The Elias Sports Bureau says that Alfonso Soriano (51 RBI with the Cubs and 49 with the Yankees) needs one RBI to become the fifth player in MLB history to drive in 50 or more runs for each of two different teams in one season, joining Matt Holliday (2009-OAK/STL), Manny Ramirez (2008-BOS/LAD), Carlos Beltran (2004-KC/HOU), and David Justice (2000-CLE/NYY).

THE NEW GUYS: By beating the Giants last night, the Yankees improved to 19-5 in opponents’ first-ever game at Yankee Stadium.

ON THIS DATE: On September 21, 2008, the Yankees played the final game at the original Yankee Stadium. It was a 7-3 win against Baltimore.

UPDATE, 1:50 p.m.: Couple of hits and a walk and the Yankees are in business with the bases loaded and no outs in the third. Top of the order coming to the plate.

UPDATE, 1:53 p.m.: Everyone moves up on the sac fly. Yankees in front 1-0 with runners in scoring position for Alex Rodriguez and then Robinson Cano.

UPDATE, 1:56 p.m.: RBI ground out by Rodriguez, RBI single by Cano and the Yankees are up 3-0.

UPDATE, 2:10 p.m.: Hey look, it’s Nunez’s second homer of the year. It’s also a 2-0 Yankees lead.

UPDATE, 2:50 p.m.: Another home run by Alfonso Soriano, who’s been incredible. That gives him 50 RBI with both the Yankees and the Cubs this season. Pretty remarkable. Oh, and Nova looks good again.

UPDATE, 2:54 p.m.: The Yankees don’t have any other shortstop who can make that play. Very nicely done by Ryan to end the seventh.
