Game 26: Seattle Mariners at New York Yankees, Young vs. Sabathia

Cano back in the Bronx

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

CC Sabathia is facing the Mariners after throwing quality+ starts against Tampa (7IP, 1ER) and Boston (6IP, 2ER). He last threw back to back QS in September of last year, but for back to back to back, we have to look back to April 7, 12 and 17 of last year. Is tonight the night?

Chris Young, formerly of the Mets, will try to keep the Yankees in check. In three career starts, the Bombers have rapped out 15 hits in 14.2 innings.

Oh, and Robinson Cano is back in the New York for the first time since leaving for that sweet, sweet Mariner's money. You might have heard about it.

Yankee Stadium will boo him. We can cheer for him in 2021 when the Mariners eat most of his salary and trade him back.
