Rodriguez and Swisher benched for Game 3 of ALCS
Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher have been benched by the New York Yankees for Game 3 of the AL championship series at Detroit on Tuesday night.
It’s the second time A-Rod has been benched this postseason. He’s been horrific going 3 for 26 in the playoffs so far, including 0 for 18 with 12 strikeouts against right-handers.
Swisher hasn’t been much better than Rodriguez, going 4 for 26 this postseason.
Eric Chavez starts at third base in place of Rodriguez. Brett Gardner is leading off and playing left field, making his first start since April 1.
This will give Alex more time to hit on the ladies in the stands.
