Who's Pitching for the Yankees: LHP CC Sabathia (6-9, 4.18 ERA) has recorded only one win since June 22. In nine starts over that stretch, he is 1-5 with a 6.62 ERA. Sabathia took the loss in his last start after allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Indians.
Who's Pitching for the Rays: RHP Chris Archer (6-15, 4.26 ERA) earned his first win of the second half in his last outing against the Minnesota Twins. He has lasted at least seven innings in three of his last five starts. Archer has the dubious honor of leading MLB with 15 losses this season.
