Coming off a drubbing at the hands of Phil Huges and the Minnesota Twins, C.C. Sabathia and the New York Yankees look for their revenge.

As one of the more remarkable stories during the 2015 MLB season, the 52-44 Minnesota Twins showed on Friday night why they’re no fluke.

A 10-1 spanking by Phil Huges and the Twins will have the New York Yankees looking for revenge on Saturday night. C.C. Sabathia (4-8, 5.25 ERA) – who’s been much better as of late – will head to the mound as he opposes Tommy Milone (5-2, 3.38 ERA).

Joe Girardi hopes Sabathia’s winning ways against the Twinkies will continue tonight. The burly lefty has a career 7-1 record with a 2.70 ERA against Minnesota. Speaking of winning ways, first-baseman Mark Teixeira has been on a torrid pace since partaking in the 2015 MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati.

First pitch will be 7:10 pm ET locally on WPIX.
