Major League Baseball Betting: Sabathia Leads NY vs Oakland

New York Yankees Cruising In The American Least East

As the second half of the 2012 MLB season rolls on, the New York Yankees were beating up on everyone they matched up against. The Yankees had won three straight series (8-2 combined record) and owned a nine game lead over the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East. Now they have lost three straight contests and the lead is down to seven games.

Oakland Athletics Hunting For American League Wild Card Berth

Oakland has been the hottest team in the Majors as the Athletics are 13-2 during the month of July. The Athletics sits at the top of the AL with a 3.38 team pitching ERA, but dead last in the Majors with a woeful .229 team batting average. Go figure? Despite the poor offensive showing, Oakland is tied with three teams for the two AL Wild Card spots. The Athletics come up short here as Sabathia and the Evil Empire strike back in this one.
