Yanks face White Sox in first game of day-night doubleheader

May 16, 2007 - 1:09 PM NY Yankees (17-19) at Chi White Sox (18-16) 2:05 pm EDT

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- The New York Yankees aim to get back on track when they take on the Chicago White Sox in the first game of a day-night doubleheader at U.S. Cellular Field on Wednesday.

The opening game of a three-game series was postponed due to rain on Tuesday and both teams have not played since Sunday. It is the Yankees' second rainout this season and the first for the White Sox.

New York looks to get back behind Mike Mussina (2-1, 4.76 ERA), who will look to win his third consecutive start. The veteran righthander has allowed just three runs and seven hits in 11 innings in two starts since returning from a strained hamstring.

Mussina is 15-15 with a 4.63 ERA in 34 starts against Chicago in his career.

Mussina will be opposed by rookie John Danks (1-4, 4.33), who picked up his first career victory last Wednesday in a 6-3 win over the Minnesota Twins. He allowed one run and three hits in 6 2/3 innings.

After a disastrous April, the Yankees looked as if they had righted the ship with six wins in eight games. But New York has dropped three of its last four.

Chicago is looking for its fifth win in six games after losing to Kansas City, 11-1, on Sunday.
