Baby Yankees in town to open series

The first-place Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are at Coca-Cola Field to open a four-game set with the Bisons tonight, giving us our first look this season at mega-Yankees prospect Jesus Montero. The 21-year-old is sixth in the IL in batting at .354.

Brian Sweeney will make his Bisons debut as tonight's starting pitcher after being signed Friday from the independent Atlantic League. Sweeney, who pitched last year for Seattle and Triple-A Tacoma, becomes the 10th different starter already for the Bisons in just 32 games. 

Here are tonight's lineups:

Dan Brewer, dh
