Rain tested the depth of the Yankees pitching staff and cut short a terrific start by their ace, but the Yankees still finished their series in Colorado with a 3-1 win today at Coors Field. The Yankees won two of three against the Rockies, despite scoring just six runs. Before the tarp rolled onto the field, it was CC Sabathia who was rolling. He’d retired 11 in a row — beginning with a first-inning sacrifice fly that brought in the Rockies only run — and had thrown just 51 pitches before an hour and 59 minute delay that was too long for him to continue. It was the combination of Adam Warren, Boone Logan, Preston Claiborne, Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera who kept Colorado off the board the rest of the way. Vernon Wells had an RBI single, Chris Stewart had a sacrifice fly and Robinson Cano hit his ninth home run of the season to provide enough offense.
