Joe D'Amico's MLB 28-10 Grand Slam Play
NY Yankees vs. Minnesota,
07/03/2013 20:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 2
Money Line: -150 NY Yankees
Today's winner is New York over Minnesota. This is my Grand Slam Play.
New York exploded for 17 runs and two victories in the first two games of this series. Robinson Cano continues to strike fear in opposing pitchers as the 2B is batting .295, with 93 hits, 20 HRs, and 54 RBIs. The Yankees send CC Sabathia to the mound. The LH owns a 16-8 mark vs. the Twins in his career. Over his L3 starts, the NY ace is 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 22 IP. Sabathia faces a Minnesota team that has lost 8 of their L11 contests. The Twins have also dropped 5 of their L6 against the Yankees, going back to last season. The pitching staff ranks near the bottom of the League in ERA (4.43), WHIP (1.42), K's (470), and Quality Starts (31). PJ Walters gets the nod here. The RH has lost 4 straight, bringing his record to 2-4 with an ERA of 6.03 on the season. The Yankees are 41-13 the L54 meetings vs. the Twins, 4-0 in Sabathia's L4 road starts against the Twins, and 7-2 their L9 road games as a favorite. Take New York. Thank you.
