Sabathia picks up third straight win

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 29, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

CC Sabathia is pitching like an ace again. Against a dangerous Tigers lineup, the Yankees big lefty allowed two runs on four hits through eight innings this afteroon. The Yankees got a 6-2 win that was Sabathia’s third straight, and he’s pitched into the eighth inning in each of those wins. Sabathia struck out eight before Dave Robertson closed out the win with a scoreless ninth. The Yankees left 15 runners on base, but Curtis Granderson and Andruw Jones each hit home runs, and Alex Rodriguez had a pair of RBIs as the Yankees won their second game in three days against the Detroit. Nick Swisher left the game with tightness in his left hamstring, and his status is uncertain. He was sent for a precautionary MRI.

    Not one word about Marshall’s game in Trenton today from the fake fan boys – typical – they play their elitist favoritism – waxing poetics about and regurgitate what they read on other sites as their own analysis. . .

    C is an ace, Chad. Fixed.

    Since Texeira’s breakout at boston, he’s gone 2-24. It amazes me how this guy goes thru terrible slumps like that. He falls off the face of the earth when he goes thru a hitting slump. #Unreal!!!

    CC has just beaten the two other best teams in the AL on consecutive starts…..not an ace….lol.

    Robertson was ridiculous in the top of the ninth. He’s throwing harder than ever.

  7. Rich in NJ April 29th, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Tex has always been bad in April, but his approach v. RHP is worrisome.

  8. Benny Blanco April 29th, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Rich, agreed but he was batting 288 just last weekend. He had a chance to finish strong and he went into a turrrible slump. My god it’s annoying. He’s too good for that.

    Drob is so so good.

    A real ace would have thrown two perfect games. I’m still not sold on CC

    JOE: we tell all our catchers your first job is defense

    AAO,

    “Aces” pitch for other teams ;)

    Colon came undone in the 9th today against the birds because of a few infield singles. Bring on the first place Birds to the Bronx.

    Time to feast this month on some of the lesser teams in the league.

    It’s been some time since I’ve enjoyed a game as I did this afternoon’s performance. It had almost everything, and the result was more than satisfactory. The resident trolls were almost bearable, and maybe they will be quiet for a little while. Go C! Go Grandy! Go Drob! A really good afternoon.

    He hated Posada.

    LOL.

    Some focus, huh? After CC shuts it down to bring a much needed W home and we knock Scherzer off the mound. Trolls and is the biggest Fake Yankee fan around.

    And probably disliked Montero lol.

    Did he SAY that??

  19. Against All Odds April 29th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    Yes he did. A reporter asked him about Stewart calling a good game and if him swinging the bat well is a plus. Joe replied by saying what I posted and then added doesn’t matter if you hit 24 HRs….100 RBIs.

  20. JM April 29th, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    I heard that and thought, geez, Joe was kind of taking a shot at Jorge there.
