Preview: Yankees (52-45) at Red Sox (59-40)
Game: 3
Venue: Fenway Park
Date: July 21, 2013 8:05 PM EDT


CC Sabathia used a Caribbean vacation to get away from baseball during the All-Star break.

He'll be back on the mound in a place that has been unkind to him since he joined the New York Yankees.

Sabathia will try to avoid losing three straight starts with the Yankees for the first time in Sunday night's road game against the Boston Red Sox.

The left-hander's run of three straight All-Star appearances came to an end this year. Sabathia (9-8, 4.07 ERA) went into the break with two straight defeats, and hasn't dropped three in a row since April 5-16, 2008, with Cleveland.

He was in St. Barts island in the Caribbean over this break.

"I didn't see anything about baseball," he told the Yankees' official website. "It was actually refreshing to be able to get away and relax. It was the first time I'd done that in a while. I feel good."

Sabathia allowed eight runs - three earned - over four innings in last Sunday's 10-4 loss to Minnesota. He will try to bounce back at Fenway Park, where he is 2-3 in seven starts with a 5.44 ERA - his highest in any stadium in which he has pitched more than once since joining the Yankees.

He's 1-1 with a 3.65 ERA in two starts against Boston this year. Dustin Pedroia went 4 for 6 against him in those games and Jose Iglesias was 4 for 5.

David Ortiz is 0 for 3 versus Sabathia this year to drop to 6 for 34 with 12 strikeouts in their matchups since 2009.

Sabathia was originally scheduled to face Jon Lester in a rematch from opening day, but Lester was pushed back to Tuesday to give him some extra rest.

Ryan Dempster (5-8, 4.24) will start instead as he looks to bounce back from his last outing July 11 when he gave up seven runs over 3 1-3 innings in an 8-7, 10-inning victory at Seattle.

Dempster is 0-5 with a 7.29 ERA in six starts against New York (52-45), including 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA in three over the last three seasons.

The right-hander has limited Robinson Cano to a double in six at_bats while Brett Gardner is 2 for 6 against him.

Cano enters with a .389 average during an 11-game hitting streak while Gardner was one of three Yankees with three hits that helped key Saturday's 5-2 victory that evened this series.

Boston (59-40) had a five-game home win streak snapped. Jacoby Ellsbury went 0 for 4 after hitting .396 over his previous 23 games.

Stephen Drew went 0 for 2 with a walk in his first action in over a month after being out with a hamstring injury. Manager John Farrell said he would likely not start Drew on Sunday since the shortstop is hitting .183 against left-handers.

Shane Victorino sat out Saturday after leaving Friday's 4-2 victory with left hamstring tightness. Farrell said before Saturday's game that Victorino "felt better than I think he expected to feel" and that the manager "expect(s) him back in the lineup (Sunday)."

Sunday Night Baseball: Yankees at Red Sox
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox (-135, 9)

DEMPSTER FOR LESTER

Boston decided to make a pitching change for this game as Jon Lester was the original starter. He will now pitch on Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Ryan Dempster is now the scheduled starter and he enters with a mediocre 4.24 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in his 19 games this season. Dempster's biggest problem has been giving up the long ball as he allows 1.63 home runs per nine innings which is the worst percentage among Boston's five regular starting pitchers this season.

CC IF HE CAN PITCH BETTER

C.C. Sabathia is 9-8 with a 4.07 ERA for the Yankees. He needs to improve off his last start when he allowed eight runs and eight hits in four innings pitched at home against the Minnesota Twins. He has allowed four runs or more in three of his last five road starts. Sabathia is seeing the Red Sox for the third time and he owns a win and a loss against them. In the win, the lefty struck out 10 while walking none in just over seven innings. He had different results in the loss back on April 1 when he gave up four runs and eight hits in just five innings. Sabathia’s last start in Boston came on August 30, 2011 when he struck out ten batters in six innings of work.

INJURY REPORT

The Yankees’ injury report got a little longer after Zoilo Almonte left Friday’s game with a sprained ankle. He joins Derek Jeter, Jayson Nix, Kevin Youkilis, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira and Francisco Cervelli who are New York hitters that are unavailable. A-Rod hopes to return Monday, while Youkilis, Granderson and Jeter are still a little bit away from helping the team.

Boston had some injury news on Friday as well with Shane Victorino straining a hamstring. The team also put Andrew Bailey on the DL with a shoulder injury that most likely will end his season. The bullpen is already without Andrew Miller and Joel Hanrahan who are each out for the season. Clay Buchholz has been out for awhile with a neck strain and inflammation.

TRENDS

Yankees are 11-4 in Sabathia’s last 15 Sunday starts
Sabathia 21-6-1 Over in his last 28 Sunday starts

Red Sox are 4-1 in Dempster's last five home starts
Dempster 5-1 Under in his last six starts vs. AL East

HITTERS TO WATCH

David Ortiz 11-for-52 vs. Sabathia
Dustin Pedroia 13-for-43 vs. Sabathia

Robinson Cano 1-for-6 vs. Dempster
Vernon Wells 3-for-9 vs. Dempster

Preview: Dodgers (50-47) at Blue Jays (45-52)
Game: 1
Venue: Rogers Centre
Date: July 22, 2013 7:07 PM EDT


The Los Angeles Dodgers haven't suffered many losses lately, but another injury to one of their stars has them concerned.

The red-hot Dodgers hope to have Matt Kemp back in the lineup Monday night when they try to extend their longest road winning streak in nine years against the Toronto Blue Jays.

After missing 11 games because of inflammation in his left shoulder, Kemp provided the club with a huge lift in his return Sunday by going 3 for 4 with a home run, double and three RBIs in a 9-2 win at Washington.

The star center fielder, however, hurt his left ankle sliding into home plate on a force play in the ninth inning and limped off the field. Manager Don Mattingly said the injury appears to be a sprain and doesn't think Kemp will be placed back on the DL.

"It's not bad. I hope it's not bad,' Kemp said. "The biggest thing will be tomorrow when I wake up and see how it feels.'

Depending on how the ankle responds, Kemp may not be available when the Dodgers (50-47) go for their eighth consecutive road win and 21st in 26 games overall in the opener of a three-game set in Toronto.

Shortstop Hanley Ramirez has certainly shown the ability to carry the load, raising his average to .393 after going 2 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs to help Los Angeles sweep the series in the nation's capital.

The Dodgers, on their longest road streak since a nine-game run July 3-26, 2004, have a chance to take over sole possession of first place in the NL West for the first time since Aug. 19 with a win and an Arizona loss.

Scheduled starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 3.09 ERA) will try to keep them rolling as he looks to bounce back from a rare subpar outing.

After going 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his previous 10 starts, the left-hander gave up five runs and seven hits over five innings before leaving without a decision in a 7-5 win at Arizona on July 10.

Ryu will have to contend with a hot Jose Reyes as he faces the AL East-worst Blue Jays (45-52) for the first time. The speedy leadoff man reached base four times in Sunday's 4-3 loss to visiting Tampa Bay and is 11 for 27 (.407) in his last six games.

After missing 18 games with a sore left knee, teammate Melky Cabrera went 1 for 4 in his return to the lineup.

The Blue Jays hope to avoid their fifth straight loss and 17th in 24 games, but right-hander Josh Johnson (1-5, 5.16) has gone 0-3 with a 6.33 ERA in four starts since his last victory June 23.

Johnson was tagged for a career high-tying seven earned runs over six innings in losing his third straight start, 7-4 at Baltimore on July 14.

He was also hit hard in his last meeting with the Dodgers, lasting only three innings after giving six runs and 10 hits - including a pair of homers - in an 8-2 loss while with the Marlins on Aug. 25.

Adrian Gonzalez, who homered off Johnson in that contest, is hitting .361 with six homers and 19 RBIs in 15 career games in Toronto.

Teammate Yasiel Puig did not start Sunday after going 1 for 14 in his last four games, but is expected to return to the lineup in this contest.

This is the first meeting since 2007 when the Dodgers took two of three in Toronto.

Preview: Yankees (52-46) at Rangers (54-44)
Game: 1
Venue: Rangers Ballpark in Arlington
Date: July 22, 2013 7:05 PM EDT


A struggling rotation has played a large role in the Texas Rangers' recent woes but the team might get some much-needed help in its series with the New York Yankees.

Yu Darvish is the first of two Rangers pitchers set to return from injuries, and he'll make his first start in a little more than two weeks in Monday night's series opener.

Texas's starters have combined for a 7.21 ERA during a 1-7 stretch and the Rangers (54-44) gave up four runs in the first four innings in their fourth consecutive defeat Sunday, 4-2 to Baltimore. That loss dropped the club three games behind AL West-leading Oakland.

The Rangers are hoping to end their struggles when they get Darvish (8-4, 3.02 ERA) and Alexi Ogando off the disabled list the next two games.

"I think (the break) was good for me," Darvish told the team's website through an interpreter. "I was able to rest and do everything I had to do."

Darvish would appear to be returning at a good time as he's 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA in two career starts against the Yankees (52-46). He did not get a decision in his only matchup this season, giving up three runs over 5 1-3 innings in a 4-3 loss June 25.

The right-hander, however, is also 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in his last four starts, and he surrendered five runs over six-plus innings in a 9-5 loss to Houston on July 6 before his first career trip to the DL for a strained back.

Darvish will face an injury-plagued Yankees team that's lost seven of 11 and got some bad news on Alex Rodriguez on Sunday.

Rodriguez was expected to return from the disabled list (hip surgery) on Tuesday but suffered a strained left quad while rehabbing. He is expected to return to the team's spring training facility in Tampa, Fla., for rest and treatment.

New York followed that announcement by blowing an early three-run lead in Boston en route to an 8-7 loss in 11 innings.

"He's going to be out for a while," manager Joe Girardi said. "So we'll just deal with it and continue to play."

Ivan Nova (4-2, 3.63) will try to help break his club out of its funk with a third victory in as many starts. The right-hander has a 2.28 ERA and 24 strikeouts over 23 2-3 innings in his three starts since returning from a stint in the minors.

Nova fanned six and gave up one run over eight innings in his final start before the All-Star break, an 8-1 win against Kansas City on July 10.

"Getting him back on track was really important to us," Girardi told the team's website. "We've seen him pitch really well. He got out of whack the second half (of 2012) and struggled a little bit at the beginning of the year, but he's back on track."

Nova has won his past two decisions against Texas despite giving up four runs in each of his last two matchups. He did not get a decision in his lone meeting with the Rangers in 2012, a 10-6 loss Aug. 16.

Adrian Beltre, A.J. Pierzynski and Elvis Andrus are a combined 3 for 32 (.094) against Nova.

Robinson Cano, batting .415 with 12 RBIs during a 12-game hit streak, is 2 for 14 (.143) in his last six games against the Rangers but is a career .342 batter in Texas. He's also 3 for 6 all-time versus Darvish.

Ichiro Suzuki is 7 for 14 against his Japanese countryman.

Preview: Pirates (57-39) at Nationals (48-50)
Game: 1
Venue: Nationals Park
Date: July 22, 2013 7:05 PM EDT


Neither the Pittsburgh Pirates nor the Washington Nationals have come up with many clutch hits since the All-Star break.

The Nationals have also dropped Dan Haren's last 10 starts heading into Monday night's opener of a four-game home set with the Pirates.

Pittsburgh (57-39) totaled 10 runs and went 2 for 27 with runners in scoring position while losing two of three over the weekend in Cincinnati. The Pirates are hitting an NL-worst .225 with men in scoring in position.

Washington (48-50) also struggled in that department this weekend, going 2 for 26 and scoring five runs while getting swept at home by the Dodgers. The Nationals are batting .237 with runners in scoring position.

"I got confidence in 'em," manager Davey Johnson said. "I don't want to keep talking about the offense. That's all we seem to talk about, that and the injuries."

The Nationals will be out to stop their three-game slide as well as this losing streak with Haren (4-10, 5.61 ERA) on the mound. Haren is 0-7 with a 5.93 ERA during the longest winless stretch of his career.

The right-hander, however, has yielded two runs over 11 innings in two starts this month. He feels a stint on the disabled list to rest an inflamed shoulder has put him back on the right track.

"I kept the ball down," he told the Nationals' official website. "That has been the key for me in the last two starts."

Haren hasn't faced the Pirates since 2010. Catcher Russell Martin has the most experience against him, going 7 for 39 (.179).

Pittsburgh has a slight edge in homers over Washington this year, 95-88. The Pirates hit six solo homers over the weekend while the Nationals ended a six-game drought when Jayson Werth hit a pair in Sunday's 9-2 defeat.

Garrett Jones homered for the second straight day for Pittsburgh in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Reds. Jones had not gone deep in 10 games before these last two.

"I'm just one of the pieces that need to pick it up,' Jones said. "I had a slow first half and this is the time to hit and be productive and help your team win."

The Pirates avoided a sweep and extended their lead over the third-place Reds to three games.

"There's still a lot of games left, but to get this final game is big," Jones said. "Every game matters."

Pittsburgh will start Charlie Morton (1-2, 3.19), who is 0-2 with a 4.11 ERA in three outings versus Washington but hasn't faced the club in two years.

The right-hander, making his seventh start after elbow surgery, gave up two runs over a season-high seven innings July 12 in a 3-2, 11-inning win over the Mets.

"It's good to see him continue to get a little bit better every time he has the ball," manager Clint Hurdle told the Pirates' official website.

Morton has never faced Bryce Harper, who was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts Sunday and is hitting .206 in 17 games since returning after missing a month with left knee bursitis. Harper has struck out 11 times in his last 23 at_bats.

The Nationals took two of three in Pittsburgh from May 3-5.
