5 - 6 loss
Thu 08/25 1:05 PM EDT

CC will - in all likelihood - crack the 200-inning barrier for the sixth time in his 11-year career tonight. He stands at 197.2 ip. He's suffered from bad luck in his last three starts - his 6.43 ERA over that span belies a stellar K/BB rate of 22/2 and a BABIP of .377 against a line drive rate of only 16%. When things eventually normalize, we'll see the dominant CC we're all used to. Tonight will be his first start against Oakland this season.

Cahill is having somewhat of a down year. His latest stretch hasn't helped much - in his last six games he's conceded 30 earned runs in 32 ip for an 8.44 ERA. And it all started with a pounding he took from the Yankees on July 22nd (2 ip, 10 er).

Lineups -

NYY: GGBG, Jeter, Grandy, Tex, Cano, Swish, Posada (DH), Wardo, Cervelli

OAK: Weeks, Crisp, Matsui, Willingham (DH), Allen, Jackson, Suzuki, Pennington, Sizemore
