CC Sabathia went out and looked like the ace that everyone expects him to be. Although nobody expected it after a 15 day lay off. Sabathia pitched 7.1 innings allowing one Run on four hits and struck out nine. The Yankees seemed to be all over Indians pitcher Corey Klubber but he kept wiggling out of Jams and Only allowed one run in the first and lasted five innings giving up six hits and stuck out six. Nick Swisher got the RBI in the first inning and the rest of the RBIs with a two run shot in the  Seventh off Cody Allen. Jeter after scoring the run in the First inning had a close call as an up and In pitch hit the bill of his helmet knocking it off his head. Jeter who seldom shows emotion during a game was visibly angry and had a few choice words for Klubber. Jeter ended the day with two more hits and two runs scored. Over the last 14 games Jeter is batting .413 and the hits keep on piling up. At this rate he will finish with 220 hits. Soriano made the game interesting by loading the bases but wiggled out of trouble without allowing a run to score for his 32 save of the season.

Tomorrow  the Yankees hope to give the Indians more of the same when Hideki Kuroda (12-8) takes the mound to face Justin Masterson(8-8). Game time is 7:05 Ill have pre game banter and all the goodies closer to game time. Remember if you don’t follow us on twitter you are missing out. You can follow us at Yankees Magazine.
