A pitching duel took turn this afternoon ehrn CC Sabathia walked three straight batters in the seventh inning, giving the Reds the go-ahead run on their way to a 5-2 win at Yankee Stadium. Sabathia was pitching a shutout, and the Yankees had just taken a two-run lead before the Reds scored three runs in the seventh. Two came on solo home runs, and the third came at the end of those three straight walks. The Reds added an insurance run in the ninth. After scattering a few early singles, the Yankees only damage against Reds starter Johnny Cueto came in the sixth when Robinson Cano doubled and Raul Ibanez hit his ninth home run of the season.
