Sabathia Notes: This will be his first start in Cleveland since Aug. 2012. His 51 wins at Progressive Field are the most of any pitcher. Went six innings, struck out eight and allowed one run in his last time out against the Red Sox. He has a 4-1 record and 2.94 ERA in seven starts against the Indians.
Salazar Notes: This will be his first-ever start against the Yankees. During his last five starts, he has a 1.53 ERA with 35 strikeouts. He is 4-2 with a 3.42 ERA in starts at home this season.
Yankees Notes: New York's four-game losing streak is the second-longest losing stretch of this season. Despite the streak, the Yankees hold a 1/2 game lead over the Blue Jays, the 40th straight day the Yankees are alone in first place. The 92 strikeouts Dellin Betances has recorded are the best in baseball among relievers. Since July 23, Didi Gregorius is hitting .417, best in the American League during that time.
Indians Notes: With last night's win, Cleveland has won four out of its last six games, including three in a row. At Progressive Field, the Indians are 23-33 this season. Chris Johnson is 7-for-9 in his three games since joining the Indians. Michael Brantley is hitting .524 over his last five games. During this last four-game stretch, the Indians have scored 39 runs.
