Scouting Report:
Yankees: In his fourth career start, Chamberlain pitched 5 2/3 solid innings, fanning nine in a no-decision against San Diego on Thursday. Chamberlain threw 100 pitches -- 58 for strikes -- holding the Padres to one run, four hits and three walks. Of the nine strikeouts, eight were swinging.

Pirates: Duke was brilliant in his last start against the Blue Jays. He was efficient in every facet of the game, throwing 64 of his 97 pitches for strikes. He went a solid seven innings and allowed no runs on six hits. Duke continues to be the Pirates' most consistent starter throughout the 2008 season and looks to continue his streak against the Yankees, who he has never faced in his career.
