Game 16: New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays: Sabathia vs. Price

CC tries to keep a good thing going

Loading Scores

4 straight wins, and 7 wins in the last 10 games. 22 consecutive scoreless innings. And CC Sabathia taking the mound.

There were days when a game like this was a lock for the Yankees. Oh, there were days.

But those days seem like a long time ago for the 33-year old.

He's opposed by his younger self, David Price, who took a shutout into the ninth in his last start. He seems like the kind of guy who'll need little help to hold back the Yankees' patchwork offense. Overshadowed by the brilliant pitching the Yankees received on the homestand is the fact that they've hit .255/.338/.333 on the road so far this season.

Small sample size, it's early, it was a different lineup. All true.

But the Yankees face an ace tonight, not a journeyman. They're going to need to play very well to put some more separation between them and the AL East.
