Keys to the Game:
  1. Stack The Lefties: Lefties are hitting .333 off Santana this year.
  2. 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.
  3. Get ’em Early: In the first three innings, opposing hitters are batting .329 off Santana.
  4. 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.
