Soriano gets a chance to hit against Lester

Alfonso+Soriano

Ichiro Suzuki has been the Yankees most consistent hitter against lefties; in fact, he has an .841 OPS. So it was quite puzzling to see Ichiro out of the lineup this evening against Jon Lester, the left handed ace for the Boston Red Sox.
