Mark Buehrle is an accomplished Major League pitcher. He is nearly 40 games over .500 for this career. He has been an All-Star four times, a World Champion and has both a no-hitter and a perfect game on his resume.
So why does he stink out loud against the Yankees?
Buehrle is 1-6 with a 6.84 ERA in nine career starts against the Yankees. In 50 innings, he has put 85 runners on base via hit or walk. It happened again on Aug. 2 in Chicago when he allowed seven runs on 12 hits over 4.1 innings. The Yankees, down 4-3, won 8-5.
Buehrle faces the Yankees and CC Sabathia tonight. CC has been terrific of late and is 6-0 in 10 career starts against Buehrle. Makes for an interesting game.
