Sabathia on the hill as he will oppose veteran Bartolo Colon for the Athletics. Both pitchers sport good recent form. C.C. Sabathia spent 15 days on the disabled list due to a groin strain. In his first game back on July 17th the Yankee left hander allowed no runs over six innings with six strikeouts against the Toronto Blue Jays in a 6-1 home win. Over his past three starts C.C. has allowed three earned runs with 19 strikeouts in 20 2/3rds innings pitched. The veteran right hander Bartolo Colon sports an ERA of just 2.49 over his past three starts in 21 2/3rds innings of work. He has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his past seven starts. Colon’s control has been good this season as the Athletics righty has just 18 walks in 111 1/3rds innings pitched in the 2012 season.
