The Yankees had to sit through a two-hour rain delay that knocked CC Sabathia out of the game, but they got a strong performance out of the bullpen and hung on to beat the Rockies 3-1 to take the three game series 2-1 in Colorado.
The Yankees regained the lead in the fourth on a sac fly by Chris Stewart and then the rain came. It rained, and rained, and rained. After two hours the game resumed, Robinson Cano hit a solo shot to make it 3-1 and the bullpen took over from there.
• Sabathia’s line: 4 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 HR. He was cruising when the rain came and retired the 11 batters in a row before the game was suspended.
