Good afternoon, Yankee fans! The Yankees are looking to sweep the Indians out of town today. You can view the lineups here.
CC Sabathia is looking to repeat his performance from Friday night and also to build on it. Sabathia had been struggling a bit this season but on Friday, everything was working for him. His velocity was up and his secondary pitches were helping him finish off Red Sox batters - his slider was especially effective.
The Yankees offense has started scoring runs, amassing seven on Monday night and four last night, with the help of Mark Teixeira who has accounted for seven of those 11 runs. The Yankees are looking for a three-game winning streak and Tex is looking for a three-game homer streak.
Will either happen? We shall see.
