CC aces test in 6-1 victory over Blue Jays
During today’s pregame, Joe Girardi was clear that he had a strict pitch count for CC Sabathia in his first game back from the DL. CC didn’t disappoint as the Yankees were able to rout the Blue Jays and win the series 6-1.
CC pitched 6 innings of shutout baseball before being relieved by Cody Eppley, Clay Rapada and Chad Qualls. Qualls gave up the sole run in the 8th inning. Andruw Jones got the Yankees 3 runs in the 2nd inning after hitting a 3 run shot off Brett Cecil. The Yankees scored their 3 runs on a Toronto error when Jayson Nix was waved home and Chris Stewart was able to advance to third. Jeter singled in Stewart and Alex Rodriguez made a force out to get Jeter home.
Robinson Cano had another hit and has a 20 game hit streak. All he needs is 37 more games and he’ll have the same hit streak record as Joe DiMaggio.
There was no news on Brett Gardner during the game which usually means “good news” but not in this case.
