CC Sabathia dominates Cardinals

By Chris Zolli, Yankees Correspondent, Sun, Apr 16th 8:29am EDT

CC Sabathia allowed one run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings on Saturday against the Cardinals, earning his second win of the season. Sabathia took a shutout into the 8th inning before Jedd Gyorko hit a solo home run and he struck out six batters while allowing only one walk. He has a 1.47 ERA this season and will face the Pirates in Pittsburgh on April 21.

Fantasy Impact
Sabathia has opened the season with three consecutive quality starts and is undoubtably the best starting pitcher for the surprising Yankees, now on a six-game winning streak. He finished the 2016 season with a 2.27 ERA in September, showing that Sabathia has taken his adjustments from the end of 2016 to 2017. Sabathia has only faced one Pirates batter in his career, David Freese is 1-for-4 with a double, and he is 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA at PNC Park in his career.
