The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five straight games. The Yankees have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Brett Gardner leads New York with 72 hits and 36 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Brian McCann have combined for 85 RBI. The New York Yankees have won seven of their last 10 home games. CC Sabathia takes the hill, and he’s 3-7 with a 5.31 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Sabathia is 2-1 with a 4.23 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 7-19 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in O'Sullivans last 4 road starts. The Yankees are 95-45 in their last 140 interleague home games and 56-26 in Sabathias last 82 home starts. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Sabathia has been fade material all season long, but I'm not pushing my luck after calling the Phillies as an outright winner yesterday. Instead, I'm taking the over, as both pitchers have allowed runs left and right this year.
