The first pitch A Rod saw in the first inning in Baltimore promptly got deposited in the stands for a 3 run home run.
That is something that has been missing from the Yanks offense.
And CC Sabathia made it stand up as he pitched a complete game shutout, scattering 4 hits and striking out 8. CC finished strong, striking out the side in the ninth.
This was just what we needed, with Alex banging the ball, and CC going deep in the game.
Phil Hughes looks to make it 2 in a row tomorrow night.
One bright spot is that the Yankees have struggled, yet have managed to hang around .500, while no one has run away with the division. They are only about 5 games out, which they can make up in a good week or so.
