As advertised Sabathia vs Price was a pitchers duel to the end, both going eight innings without surrendering a run. Its came down to the bull pens which were equally as dominant. Kerry Wood has been lights out for the Yankees looking like the Kerry Wood of old hit 95 on the radar gun and dropping in curve balls that buckle opposing batters knees. Carl Crawford was ejected after striking out on just this type of pitch. This doesn’t bear well for Carl, In a pennant race you have to show a bit more control of your emotions than that. Luckily for the Rays it didn’t matter as a bottom of the eleventh walk off home run sealed the 1-0 victory for the Rays.
The Yankees saved Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson and Mariano Rivera as these two teams meet six more times in the next week or so. Yankees fans dont worry about this loss. Tonight is an opportunity to get it right back.
