Phew! Yanks Avoid Sweep

Thursday, July 1, 2010

SEA 2 5 0
NYY 4 7 0

WP: Sabathia (10-3)
LP: Aardsma (0-5)
S: Rivera (18)

Player of the Game: Despite blowing a 2-0 lead in the eighth inning in large part to a wild pitch, CC Sabathia continued to show his dominance of late, striking out four and going eight strong to win his sixth consecutive start and earning his tenth win of the season almost three weeks earlier than last season when he won 19 games.
Turning Point/Play of the Game: I didn't see all of this game but Alex Rodriguez's two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth can account for each of these as he helped regain the lead for the Yanks. It was A-Rod's 595th career homer as he closes in on 600.


  • Robinson Cano hit a solo home run to continue his MVP-type season.
  • You have to wonder if Girardi will take Sabathia or Phil Hughes along with Andy Pettitte for the All-Star game. Sabathia has been much more effective than Hughes of late and you can make a case he deserves it over Hughes.
  • Speaking of the All Star Game, remember to help get Nick Swisher in by voting all day today until midnight.
