The New York Yankees have a long way to go as they teeter on the edge of being eliminated from playoff contention, but they took the first step last night with their ninth-inning comeback against the Blue Jays. They are now five games back of the final playoff spot with just six games left to play so they pretty much have to win out and will have to face the AL East-leading Red Sox in half of those games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Red Sox’ last 8 games against their division.
- The Red Sox are 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Yankees.
- The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Yankees’ last 6 games as underdog.
Luis Cessa is charged with the unenviable task of keeping his team alive against the BoSox tonight in just the eighth start of his career. The rookie has dropped three straight decisions but hasn’t pitched terribly. He has an ERA of 4.50 this month but has succumbed to the long ball, giving up six home runs in his four September starts.
The Red Sox just won’t stop winning. They now have 11 in a row and will send David Price to the mound tonight as Boston goes for its 10th straight win in games the lefty has pitched. Price has fared brutally against the Yankees this year, though, as he owns a 1-2 record and 7.71 ERA against the Bronx Bombers in his four starts against them this year.
