New York Yankees
The Yankees defeated the Athletics in a rubber match from the Stadium on Sunday, got Monday off and will play Washington in a quick two-game series this week before getting another day off leading into a weekend series.
CC Sabathia had the chance to polish off a sweep of the Red Sox in his last start but could only get through four innings. Boston put together some long at-bats and found gaps but Sabathia has been stellar all season.
Cartsen Charles’ career-best ERA+ mark is 156 and it didn’t even come in his Cy Young season. This year, it’s 205.
Sabathia is striking out fewer than seven batters per nine innings, which he last did in 2004. He is, however, walking fewer batters this season than he ever has in his career.
The Nationals do have some lefty pop to worry about, but Sabathia forces his opponent to earn everything, which is an approach I suspect will work against Washington.
Washington has won four consecutive series’, none more impressive than its most recent four-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Nats got Monday to travel after finishing the sweep on Sunday Night Baseball and come home feeling a lot better about themselves now that they are just two out of the NL East.
Tanner Roark averages over six innings per outing and his WHIP is down right around 1.00. He beat Zack Greinke in the first game of the Arizona series, 2–1, with seven innings of four-hit baseball.
