Posted By Sports Talk Florida On May 31, 2013 @ 4:29 PM In MLB | No Comments

IN THE STANDINGS: Last night Boston moved 2.0 games ahead of New York in the division for the 1st time since the end of play on 5/6…With a win tonight and an Orioles loss, the Sox would match their season high at 3.0 games up in the AL East (also following games of 4/29).

BRONX SUCCESS: Jon Lester is 7-2 with a 4.14 ERA (31 ER/67.1 IP) in 12 career starts at the new Yankee Stadium…His 7 wins are the most by a visitor at the ballpark and 3 more than the next-highest total.

CY WHAT?: The Red Sox are 4-2 thus far in 2013 when facing a former Cy Young Award winner, having won games started by CC Sabathia (4/1 at NYY), R.A. Dickey (4/7 at TOR), and David Price (twice, 4/13 at BOS and 5/15 at TB).

  • Boston is 6-2 in its last 8 games against Sabathia dating back to the start of 2011…In that time, Sabathia is 2-5 with a 6.12 ERA (34 ER/50.0 IP) against Boston compared to 36-13 with a 2.97 ERA (152 ER/460.0 IP) against all other teams.
