Found June 05, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
Get the brooms out. After coming off what might be hist best start of the season, CC Sabathia takes the ball with hopes of sweeping away the Cleveland Indians this afternoon from the Stadium. On the offensive side, Mark Teixeira has almost single-handedly won this series for the Yankees, connecting on two homers and driving in seven through the first two games. Notoriously a slow starter, this is a good sign for Teix who was sidelined for the first couple of months with a serious wrist injury. After today’s game, the Yankees head out on the road for their first West Coast swing of the year. Check out our full-game preview here!
