There is usually some aspect of the game you can focus on to tell the story. The Yankees made that tough tonight.
Everybody in the lineup had at least one hit. Seven players had at least one RBI. Everybody but Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui scored at least one run. CC Sabathia pitched well. But let’s face it, he was in a rocking chair most of the night.
It was just one of those games where everybody did a little something.
Here’s CC talking about his start:
The Yankees are 9-9 in CC’s 18 starts. Look for that to change. He usually heats it up in the summer and he’s had a little bad luck that’ll balance out, starting five games that the Yankees lost by one or two runs.
As for Robinson Cano, he was all smiles afterward after breaking that 0 for 21 streak with RISP. He didn’t know the exact numbers but he knew he had been stinking it up. Here’s Robbie:
A.J. Burnett faces Glenn Perkins tomorrow. Come back for more.
