Behind an ace-like performance from CC Sabathia the Yankees held a nice 4-0 lead through the first seven innings of this game until the bullpen blew the lead and they lost o the Twins 5-4 in 10 innings.
Rafael Soriano was the main culprit has he was charged with four earned runs, but he left the game with a 4-1 lead, two outs, and the bases loaded. David Robertson then gave up the big hit to Delmon Young, a fly ball to right that Nick Swisher mishandled and the game was tied.
The Yankees had previously gotten their 4-0 lead off a three-run home run in the first inning by Mark Teixeira (his 4th) and a solo shot by Andruw Jones in the second. Sabathia started and pitched a gem, but was lifted after seven innings because he had thrown 107 pitches.
