Jon Lester gets his fifth start of July today in Yankee Stadium and is in desperate need of a confidence boost. His first start of the month was against Oakland and was a well pitched game in a no-decision. Since then, he has had a truly tough month, culminating in his last start against Toronto — a four-inning outing — where his game score was negative three.
C.C. Sabathia gave up three runs over seven innings — two off the long ball — his last time out in a contest the Yankees lost against Oakland in extras. It’s FOX baseball beast time. Comment away.
