My Have the Tides Turned: After starting the season 0-8 against the Red Sox, the Yankees are 7-1 in their last 8 meetings and trail the season series 9-7. They lead the Red Sox by 6.5 games and the magic number to clinch the division is 3.

Home Sweet Home: The Yankees are 27-7 at home since the All-Star Break and are 53-23 at home, the best in the majors.

Cruise Control Sabathia: In Sabathia's last 10 starts, he is 8-0 with a 2.24 ERA. He has given up 55 hits and 17 walks and struck out 77 in his last 72.1 innings pitched. He leads the AL in wins and has thrown himself into the Cy Young discussion. In other words, he's earning his paycheck.

Notes on the Enemy: Victor Martinez enters today with a 24-game hitting streak. David Roidtiz has homered in 3 straight games and has the most home-runs in the majors since June 6.
