Keys the Game: Yankees vs. Red Sox, August 30 2011


So Baseball Armageddon, version 5 of 6 for 2011, is upon us.  The walking wounded, New York Yankees, stroll into Fenway Park for a three game set with the Sawx.

1. Which Sabathia will show up tonight? The Yankees will pitch their ace, C.C. Sabathia against the Red Sox.  He is 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA against Boston and 17-3 with a 2.40 ERA versus the rest of the league.  See his stats vs the Red Sox in 2011 here:

Wins (White), Losses (Orange), Runs Allowed (Green)

2. Will A-Gone continue to torment the Yankees tonight as he has so far this season?  The reigning American League player of the week is a vital part of the Red Sox’s offense.  See his numbers in 2011 against the Yankees in 12 games so far here:

Hits (Blue), Runs Scored (Orange), RBI (Green)

3. Who will be tonight’s X factor?  These intense games usually come down to a dramatic finish in the ninth with a suicide squeeze or a walk-off Home Run. Which team’s unsung hero will propel their side to victory?
