For the seventh and hopefully final time this season, the Yankees will play a doubleheader.

Of the six they’ve played thus far, the Pinstripers have swept five and split another, though only two of the teams they’ve faced are in real postseason contention (Rays, Mets). This will be their first of the set with September rosters, meaning neither team should be short on arms.

Game 1 features J.A. Happ against Matt Boyd with Happ coming in with 15 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings. The second game pits the tandem of CC Sabathia and Domingo German against Spencer Turnbull.

We’ll have a recap up after both games are done, but here are the Game 1 lineups for now:

Yankees (95-51)

  1. DJ LeMahieu, 2B
  2. Aaron Judge, RF
  3. Edwin Encarnación, DH
  4. Luke Voit, 1B
  5. Didi Gregorius, SS
  6. Gio Urshela, 3B
  7. Cameron Maybin, CF
  8. Clint Frazier, LF
  9. Austin Romine, C

LHP J.A. Happ

Tigers (43-100)

  1. Victor Reyes, CF
  2. Jeimer Candelario, 1B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, DH
  4. Ronny Rodríguez, 2B
  5. Dawel Lugo, 3B
  6. Christin Stewart, LF
  7. Travis Demeritte, RF
  8. Jake Rogers, C
  9. Willi Castro, SS

  1. Frazier is the poorest excuse for a major league outfielder I’ve ever seen in my life, just awful

      It’s hard to understand how awkward he looks out there, even on routine plays. You’d think he was a converted infielder just playing the position for the first time. Future DH.
