NEW YORK — It’s overcast, but it has stopped raining here the maze known as Citi Field. Though the dimensions are large — try 415 at its deepest point to the right of centerfield — the ballpark has a smaller feel than that. The stands are filling up, despite the rainy weather all day, and it appears that we’ll get this game in.

As for the lineup, Kevin Youkilis began the day hitting fourth behind David Ortiz and in front of J.D. Drew, but he was scratched due to an illness. He was replaced by Chris Carter at first base.
