Eric Chavez OK, pinch hits
Eric Chavez, who was hit by a pitch just above his right ankle in the eighth inning Friday night, didn't appear to walk with any noticeable limp before the game. Chavez wasn't in the lineup, but with the Yankees facing lefthander Jon Lester, Chavez wasn't going to start anyway. Jayson Nix got the nod at third base and hit a two-run homer in the fifth. Chavez pinch hit in the seventh inning against righthander Matt Albers and popped up.
