Girardi said that Lowe would likely be unavailable out of the bullpen on Tuesday and Wednesday after throwing 44 pitches over four innings during Monday's 8-2 win over the Rangers in his Yankees debut.
On Tuesday, Casey McGehee made his third start at third base since the Yankees acquired him from Pittsburgh at the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline. The trio of McGehee, Eric Chavez and Jayson Nix were a combined 24-for-64 with seven homers, 15 RBIs and 17 runs scored in 18 games started at third base with Rodriguez on the disabled list.
On this date in 1942, the Yankees set a Major League record with seven double plays behind starter Lefty Gomez and reliever Johnny Murphy in an 11-2 win against the A's. Three National League teams have since tied the record.
