Sabathia Appears To Have Found Former Glory

CC Sabathia has been a solid arm in the New York Yankees rotation for years but the 16-year veteran seems to have found the fountain of youth. In Sabathia’s past four starts, all of which saw the Yankees win, he has allowed just four earned runs with 26 strikeouts and six walks. Can Sabathia and the Yankees continue to roll or will the Boston Red Sox solve the veteran Wednesday?

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games at home with CC Sabathia as the starter.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Red Sox' last 9 games against the AL East.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Yankees' last 7 games.

The BoSox will counter with Rick Porcello, who has been a steady presence on the mound. The Morristown, New Jersey native has been surrendering plenty of hits but has held opponents to three or fewer runs in nine of his 12 starts this season. His command of the strike zone has been masterful, as Porcello has 41 K’s and five walks since the start of May.

The Red Sox won the series opener Tuesday, which ended a five-game drought for the squad against the Bronx Bombers. Boston, which ranks 26th in the MLB in home runs, picked up the win on the back of three home runs, including back-to-back jacks from Mitch Moreland and Hanley Ramirez. The biggest issue in the opener for the Yankees came at the top of the order with Brett Gardner and Gary Sanchez going 0-for-9 with five strikeouts.
