CC to Sox: Can't Touch This

Saturday, August 8, 2009

I'm sticking to what Jim's been doing and keeping up with the song title headlines.

Red Sox 0 4 1
Yankees 5 9 0

WP: Sabathia (12-7)
LP: Buchholz (1-2)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: No doubt about this one. Carsten Charles Sabathia. He threw 7.2 scoreless innings giving up 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out nine.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Derek Jeter turning an athletic double play in the seventh. The Red Sox were showing their only signs of life, but Lowell hit a grounder to Cano who tossed it to Jeter, who lept over Youkillis, landed, stepped and threw out Lowell.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: When CC Sabathia got the first out of the game. Red Sox offense was MIA after that (and carrying over from last night).


  • Sabathia took a no-hitter into the sixth before Ellsbury broke it up. He also now has the bullpen rested for tommorow night.
  • I think it's safe to say Sabathia and Burnett earned their pinstripes this weekend. Could not have asked for better performace out of them.
  • This is the first time since 2002 the Yankees shutout the Red Sox back-to-back games.
  • The Yankees are now 5.5 games up and go for the sweep tommorow. The Red Sox season is starting to get uglier than Clay Buchholz's face and I say show no mercy. Knock 'em while they're down.
Yankees Red Sox 8 pm ET ESPN, Yankee Stadium

The members of Michael Kay's Successors will be at the game tommorow to see if the Yankees can finish off the Bronx Beatdown.

See Ya!
