I feel bad for CC Sabathia, but how long do we have to feel sorry for him? When is he going to find his groove? Will he? I don't have the answers and I'm not sure he does either. We have a situation with CC right now where the Yankees could be forced to pull him from the starting rotation. I mean, look, I never thought I'd ever say that, the guy's a gamer, I love him on the mound... but I'm going to be honest, it's getting painful. Last night was brutal.
Sabathia went 4.2 innings, gave up 8 hits and 6 runs. He struck out only 4. That means alot. It means he's not fooling anyone and not hitting his spots. That means ladies and gentlemen... that he's no longer a dominant pitcher.
The Yankees clawed back, like our offense normally will do, but it wasn't enough. Here's how we scored:
Alex Rodriguez sacrificed home a run in the first. In the second, Garrett Jones homered. In the third, Brett Gardner homered.
Then in the 5th, Chase Headley hit a solo shot, his 100th of his career. That was followed by an ARod homer, and then Chris Young doubled in a run. That would be all for us. At that point, it was tied 6-6. Then, in the 9th, the Phillies scored 5 off of Betances and Rumbelow. Sad ending... pathetic. I should have just titled it Brutal Pitching...Geez.
Final: Phillies 11 - Yankees 6
