Losing Streak? Is that allowed?: The Yankees lost back-to-back games for the first time this month yesterday. Last time they lost two games in a row was against the White Sox July 31-August 1. They also lost 3 in a row to them. They have CC Sabathia on the mound today to try and turn things around.
The Other MVP: Derek Jeter is 9 for 20 on the road trip with 5 RBI. He has raised his average 10 points to .327.
Cali Guy For NY, Jersey Guy For Oakland: CC Sabathia grew up about 25 minutes away from the Colliseum but he is 1-4 with a 7.12 ERA there in his career. A's rookie pitcher Vinny Mazarro grew up about 13 miles from Yankee Stadium and gave up 6 runs in 4.1 innings when he last faced the Yankees on July 21.
