Keys to the Game:
- Stack The Lefties: Lefties are hitting .333 off Santana this year.
- First Blood: When Santana throws a first pitch strike, opposing hitters are batting .228, when he doesn’t, they are batting .361, that should give us an early indication of how Santana’s night will go.
- Get ’em Early: In the first three innings, opposing hitters are batting .329 off Santana.
- Start The Inning Right: Leading off the inning, opposing hitters are batting .313 off Santana. If the Yankees take advantage of that, according to “The Book” they will have a 95.3 % chance of scoring a run.
