NY Yankees vs Detroit by bOdyssey

NY-Yankees
VS
Detroit
CC Sabathia (3-4, 2.58 ERA) is on the roll right now. A lot of people thought he was too old and washed up to be an effective starting pitcher again. Yankees fans were hoping CC would be moved to the bullpen, and the rest of baseball was ready to treat him like a punching bag.

 

Meanwhile, Sabathia got the last laugh, holding the Tigers to three runs over six innings in an 8-4 Yankees win at Comerica Park on April 9. He has only gotten better since then, holding opponents to a 2.58 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in nine starts this year. He tossed five shutout innings in his last start, and has only allowed five runs (three earned) in his last 31 innings, a 0.87 ERA. Righties are hitting just .229 with absolutely no power against Sabathia this season that is mot good news for Tigers heavy-righty line-up.

 

Mike Pelfrey (1-5, 4.76 ERA) is over performing recently but soon or later (I think sooner rather later) he should be back on earth. Why not here? Yankees offence is crazy at home having scored 139 of their 241 runs at home this year, even though they have played a couple more games on the road. Yankee Stadium has been a safe haven for the Bronx Bombers, where they have won 12 of their past 17 games. Meanwhile, the Tigers have struggled on the road, compiling a 4-9 record over the past month.

 

Having in mind Sabathia's dominance over right-handed hitters, it could be a long night for the Tigers.
