Clear skies, similar looks for Game 4 tonight



The weather shouldn't be an issue tonight, though temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s during Game 4 of the World Series. The Yankees are leading 2-1 and are pitching CC Sabathia on short rest tonight while the Phillies are turning to Joe Blanton.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is sticking with his plan of three starters, announcing that RHP A.J. Burnett will start Game 5 on Monday on short rest rather than ex-Ray RHP Chad Gaudin. The Phillies will bring back ace LHP Cliff Lee, whom they didn't want to use on short rest.

Here are the lineups, as the Phillies try to even things up:

Jeter ss
Damon lf
Teixeira 1b
A-Rod 3b
Posada c
Cano 2b
Swisher rf
Cabrera cf
Sabathia p

Rollins ss
Victorino cf
Utley 2b
Howard 1b
Werth rf
Ibanez lf
Feliz 3b
Ruiz c
Blanton p
