Watch for ...

Dandy Andy: Sonnanstine was sharp in his last outing vs. the Royals, and the last time he faced the Yankees. Overall he is 2-1, 5.00 vs. the Yanks. Right-handed batters have been a problem, hitting .433 off him, with eight of the nine HRs he has allowed.

Dandier Andy: Pettitte tends to pitch very well against the Rays, with 15-4, 3.78 career numbers. But his last time, on May 7, he allowed a career-high four HRs.

Saturday brushes with fame

Actor Will Ferrell, right, had some fun heckling manager Joe Maddon, and actor Kate Hudson sat near third, presumably watching rumored beau A-Rod. "If someone had poked me and said it's Ferrell, I would have turned around," Maddon said. "I would have been honored to be heckled by him." ... Evan Longoria sent Ferrell a bat. ... 3B coach Tom Foley tossed a ball to a young fan in the first, then found out later from B.J. Upton that the kid was with Hudson. "I told my wife Kate Hudson and I had a moment," Foley joked.
