CC Sabathia is something else, ain't he?
It's a good story when fans in Yankeeland give up on you, but you show up and work through the kinks and come back as one of the more dominating pitchers on the team once again. CC is back, there is no question! And now, everyone who blasted him as old and unreliable are silent. That makes me happy.
The big blow and win came when Didi Gregorius turned on a fast ball and deposited it in the seats. It was a 3 run shot and put the Yankees in the winners slot 4-1. YESNetwork.com has a nice description of yesterday's game:
"Gregorius hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, CC
Sabathia had another strong start and the New York Yankees stopped a
four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory Thursday night over the
Minnesota Twins... Gregorius is 6 for 11 with seven RBIs in his last three games. Lefties are batting just .125 (4 for 32) against Abad.
Sabathia (5-4) needing 116 pitches to complete six innings, but he
struck out seven and retired the last five batters he faced. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 13 attempts."
Let's hope the wins continue!
Final: Yankees 4 - Twins 1
