A day after Masahiro Tanaka delivered a pitching performance to give the Yankees their first win of the series against St. Louis, it was CC Sabathia’s turn on the mound. And for almost eight innings, Sabathia dazzled. Along with getting some run support from the offense, the team was able to defeat the Cardinals 3-2 for their sixth straight win at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees scored in the top of the first on a wild pitch that plated Brett Gardner. In the bottom of the sixth, Aaron Hicks reached on a fielder’s choice which scored Ronald Torreyes, and later in the inning Chris Carter hit a RBI single.
— The Yankees and Cardinals square off in the series finale of this three game set as Michael Pineda hopes to extend the Yankees win-streak to seven. Adam Wainwright will start for the Cardinals. First pitch is at 8:05 p.m. and the game will air on ESPN.
