Sabathia pitched 7.1 innings, he gave up 6 hits and only 1 run. The Monster struck out 10 tonight. I will take that every start. The Red Sox only scored 1 run all night. That means David Robertson and Mariano Rivera also held a tough hitting Sox team. Very good so far. How was the hitting? I'm glad you asked...
Jayson Nix singled in a returning Mark Teixeira in the 2nd inning. That was quickly followed by Ichiro Suzuki singling in Vernon Wells.
Later on on the 5th, it was Kevin Youkilis who singled in Ichiro Suzuki. Then in the 7th, Brett Gardner singled in Ichiro again.
Final Score: Yankees 4 - Red Sox 1.
