Not much to say about this one. The only thing that caught Yankee fans interest in this game was that C.C. Sabathia was going for his 20th win. Besides that, this game had no meaning.
Sabathia didn’t have his usual stuff today, and was blown out of the game early. His pitching line was L, 2.2IP 8H 9R 5ER 5BB 3K. Juan Miranda hit his first career home run as a New York Yankee in the 8th inning. That was pretty much the only highlight of the offense.
The Yankees wound up being blown out 13-4 in the end.
Sabathia had this to say after the game….
“Maybe I’ll get another shot sometime down the road,” Sabathia said. “Right now the most important thing is to win a championship and get ready for the playoffs.”
