CC Sabathia was the ace that the Yankees dreamed about yet again, and the Yankees took advantage of a very sloppy night from the Angels in a 4-1 win. Back with much more from the clubhouse shortly.

Also, A-Rod said Sabathia “had it all working tonight. In the eighth inning, he’s throwing 96, 97 mph – that’s pretty impressive.” A-Rod also admitted that he ran right through Rob Thomson’s stop sign on the play at home but did so because he put his head down once he got to third base. “It was my mistake,” he said.
