CC Sabathia shuts down Red Sox

By Chris Zolli, Yankees Correspondent, Mon, Jul 17th 6:44am EDT

CC Sabathia pitched six shutout innings in the first game of a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Sunday, allowing just two hits. Sabathia walked five and struck out three, winning his sixth decision in his last seven. He has a 3.54 ERA this season and will face the Mariners in Seattle on July 21.

Fantasy Impact
Sabathia may have walked five batters, but his scoreless appearance is his second straight against the Red Sox. Eight walks in 8 1/3 innings since returning from the disabled list is not a good sign, but his 1.27 WHIP and .237 batting average allowed both are playable. Current Mariners have a .551 OPS in 112 career at-bats against Sabathia and he is 5-2 with a 2.34 ERA on the road this season.
