Cubs, Yankees, Sunday Night Baseball

By bullpenbrian at 06.19.2011 1 comment.

CC Sabathia (8-4), 3.28 ERA makes his second career start at Wrigley Field Sunday night.

He’s (1-2), 5.76 ERA in four starts against the Cubs. Overall, however, he’s (17-7), 3.57 ERA in 38 career interleague starts, including (8-1), 2.78 ERA over his last 12.  Dominate.

Sabathia marks the fourth former Cy Young Award to face the Cubs in the last 10 days…Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay and Zack Greinke.

*Cubs with success against CC:

Alfonso Soriano: 12-for-36, 5HR
Reed Johnson: 9-for-30
Aramis Ramirez: 7-for-16

*Cubs have issued a MLB-worst 280 walks this season. The Yankees had a season-best 10 free passes on Saturday–six from Ryan Dempster.

New York leads baseball with 103 home runs…but they’ve failed to homer in three consecutive games, its longest drought this season.

*Starlin Castro is 4-for-8 in this series hitting .415 with eight doubles in his last 10 games.
