The Yankees needed something to take the sour taste out of their mouths following the events that occurred last night. Well, CC Sabathia was able to help as he pitched six innings in a 14-5 victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
Sabathia went six innings, giving up two runs on three hits while striking out eighth. Shane Greene made his Major League debut in the seventh but it didn’t go as planned, giving up three runs (two earned) on no hits while walking three. The Yankees saw David Robertson in a game for the first time since he was placed on the disabled list in early April, pitching a 1, 2, 3 ninth inning.
The Yankees had 14 hits and scored 14 runs with almost every Yankee having a hit in this game. The only Yankee to not have a hit was Brett Gardner, but he was just as productive as he walked three times, reached on an error, stole two bases and scored four runs. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits in the game, Derek Jeter, Yangervis Solarte, Alfonso Soriano and Brian Roberts had two hits and Carlos Beltran, Mark Teixeira and Brian McCann each had a hit apiece. The one hit Mark Teixeira had was his first home run of the season.
– The Yankees come home to the Bronx and will play the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for three games. Hiroki Kuroda is slated to take the mound for the Yankees and C.J. Wilson is slated to oppose Kuroda and the Yankees. First pitch will be at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
