Game 62: CC, Yanks Look to Continue Streaks

With the Yankees winning streak up to six games, and CC Sabathia‘s personal win-streak at five, the lefty looks to extend both.

Sabathia has been nothing short of brilliant as he enters the final year of his contract. He has won each of his last five starts, during which time he has a 1.11 ERA and 31 strikeouts. Sabathia did not face the Angels last season, but carries a career 3.76 ERA in 11 starts at Angel Stadium.

The Angels counter with converted reliever JC Ramírez. He has made 11 starts with a 4.25 ERA, and beat the Detroit Tigers last time out. He did give up four runs on 10 hits in that outing, however. Ramírez pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen against the Yankees last year.

The Yankee lineup resets to “normal” as Gary Sánchez will be behind the plate. Didi Gregorius looks to push his hitting streak to 15 games tonight. During the streak, he is 23-for-58 (.397) with seven RBI.

The Angels trot out a very similar lineup, with the exception of a lefty-righty platoon difference at first base. C.J. Cron gets the start instead of Luis Valbuena.
