Third time’s the charm, right? After being on the wrong side in his last two starts, CC Sabathia will look for his 250th career win tonight. The Yankees’ offense, however, hasn’t given the veteran too much run support this year. Sabathia has seven starts of five or more innings pitched, and he’s been given two or fewer runs in support from his offense. All of those seven starts have been recorded as a loss or no-decision.
The Yankees’ lineup looks a lot more normal than what they’ve put out there for most of the season.
Having lost seven out of their last ten games, the Yanks will be faced will a tall task tonight as Lucas Giolito will be on the hill for Chicago. The 24-year-old hasn’t given up a run in his last 15 innings. Here is his supporting cast:
The game can be seen on WPIX, or you can listen on WFAN and WADO. First pitch is at 8:10 PM EST. Let’s go Yanks!
