Indians Have Seven Straight Wins With Salazar on the Mound

NYY was beat up by Cleveland last night and dropped another game below .500 in the competitive AL East. They will send out CC Sabathia (5-6, 3.48 ERA) this afternoon to take on Danny Salazar (10-3, 2.36 ERA) and the AL Central-leading Indians, who have cooled off a little since their 14-game winning streak.

SHARK BITES
  • Cleveland is 14-2 in its last 16 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Yankees’ last 11 road games.
  • The Indians are 7-0 in their last 7 games with Salazar as their starter.

As we approach the all-star break, the young Danny Salazar is near the top of contention for the AL Cy Young award. The Dominican strikeout artist is in his third year in the league and has improved his numbers every year he’s been in the league. In seven home starts this season, Salazar is 5-1 with a 2.05 ERA.

Sabathia continues to impress this year as it seems getting was the best thing that could’ve happened to him – and the Yankees. CC has been really good on the road, posting a 2.81 ERA away from Yankee Stadium.
