Sabathia-son takes on Johnny
Game three of the Yankees and Reds series could be an instant classic. After splitting the first two games, each team will send its ace to the hill Sunday afternoon.
Both CC Sabathia (5-1, 3.77 ERA) and Johnny Cueto (4-1, 1.89 ERA) lost for the first time this season in their last starts.
Cueto has been bullying Sabathia all season. It supposedly started when CC starting dating Johnny's ex-girlfriend.
At a party, CC sprayed water all over Cueto in the bathroom. Rather than fight it out on the streets, the game was scheduled for Sunday. Reds manager Dusty Baker was heard telling Cueto to "sweep the leg" before the game. This could be a reference to some kind of trick, but given the size of the two men (Sabathia 6'7 290lbs, Cueto 5'10 215 lbs) that seems unlikely.
Game starts at 1:05pm (how is this not the Sunday night game?)
