Grady's Ripken Streak in jeopardy

Grady Sizemore is not in the lineup today as the Indians play the New York Yankees and go for a sweep. If Sizemore doesn’t play before the end of the game, it would snap a consecutive games played streak of 391 ballgames which is the longest active streak in the Major Leagues.

Ironically, I don’t think Justin Upton (who I traded Sizemore for) is going to be in the lineup in San Diego either, when the Dbacks prepare to face Jake Peavy. Upton tweaked a leg and has cramps that caused him to be removed from last night’s game and his status at this time is unknown.
