Halfway There: The Yankees are up 2-1 in the series with only two more victories left to bring home a championship. They look to go up 3-1 today and turn to CC Sabathia.
Three Days Best: CC Sabathia is pitching on three days rest again today. Lookinga t his stats that doesn't seem to bother him. He is 5-3 with a 3.16 ERA when pitching on short rest in his career (including postseason). His latest being an 8 inning 1 run performance against the Angels in the ALCS.
A-Bomb: A-Rod hit his first World Series home run yesterday, which brought the Yankees within 3-2 at the time in the game. A-Rod was hitless in his last 10 at bats.
A.J. Burnett has been announced as the Game 5 starter. He too, will be pitching on three days rest. This could potentially set up Pettitte going on three days rest of there is a Game 6, which I'm not too sure how he will do in that situation.
