What more can we say about last nights performance by CC Sabathia. He is the Ace and last night he proved it. 8.75 innings of brilliance as the Yankees opened the game up in the ninth inning on their way to a 7-2 victory over the Orioles at Camden Yards. Russell Martin’s 9th inning HR sparked the bombers as they took the lead that would not be relinquished. Other stars of the Game Were Jeter Ichiro and Cano who had great games at the plate. One area of concern is A-Rod who struck out three times but he did contribute with a walk and a run scored and is often brilliant in the field. He needs to get going if the Yankees are to win it all I think it is a key factor.Back to work tonight as Pettitte takes the mound with the Yankees look to take a commanding 2-0 lead before returning to NY on Thursday.
