Rays at Yankees

The veteran, CC Sabathia, takes the mound for the Yankees. He's thrown at least 7 innings in his last 5 starts. In those 32 innings of baseball, he's been every inch the $20 million dollar man (even though he's only making $14 this season). In this run of brilliance Sabathia has allowed only 26 hits and 9 bases on balls while averaging exactly a strikeout per inning.

The recent dominance of the starting rotation has propelled the Yankees to a 19-7 (.731) run. The offense has chugged right along, score 5.8 runs per game over that stretch. Mark Teixeira has been earning his paycheck lately: .379/.450/.832 in the last 4 weeks.

More of the same, more of the same.
