Luis Martinez gets his first start of the season tonight, and is excited for the opportunity.
"It's my first time to play at Yankee Stadium," he said. "Just make the best of it and help my team any way I can."
Martinez will be working with Matt Harrison, who is going for his 10th road victory. Martinez is batting eighth, as manager Ron Washington wanted to split up left-handed batters David Murphy and Mitch Moreland.
