Sanchez Powers Yankees on Saturday
The Yankees led the Red Sox by 9.5 games in the American League East after Gary Sanchez hit a tie-breaking two-run home run in the fifth off Rick Porcello in last night’s 5-3 win.
The home run helped the Yankees win their fifth straight game and improve to 15-3 in their last 18. Sanchez has home runs in six of his last nine games and he has 12 home runs in his last 26 games.
The Red Sox have now lost four in a row and they’re 2-6 in their last eight games after getting within three games of first place in the division on May 13.
David Price (2-2, 2.83 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) vs. CC Sabathia (3-1, 3.48 ERA, 1.26 WHIP)
David Price is 1-0 with a 1.53 ERA in his last four starts after throwing six innings of three-hit ball against the Indians last Tuesday, issuing one walk with six strikeouts to get a no-decision in a 7-5 loss.
Price was 0-3 with a 10.34 ERA and a 1.97 WHIP in four starts against the Yankees last season and Gary Sanchez hit two home runs off him and is 7-for-14 with six home runs and 12 RBI in his career against him.
The left-hander is 15-14 with a 4.90 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP in 42 career appearances (41 starts) against the Yankees, including 2-7 with a 7.71 ERA in 11 starts against them since joining the Red Sox.
Sabathia last pitched on May 22 against the Orioles, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits (two home runs) and two walks with seven strikeouts over five innings in a 7-5 win.
The left-hander is 18-13 with a 4.14 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP in 42 career starts against the Red Sox and he’s 6-0 with a 2.09 ERA over his last eight starts against them.
