Another win. Another sweep. Thats six in a row for the Yanks. Their second sweep in a row. I’m going to need a new broom. CC was the starter for the Yanks tonight. He was a bit shaky in the first two innings, but turned it on. He finished the night going seven innings, giving up one run on seven hits and striking out nine. 
Both teams scored early. Markakis had a sac-fly in the first and Hinske had another solo homer for the Yanks in the third. Both teams were shut down until the seventh, when A-Rod came through with a big two-run single to make it 3-1 Yanks. Bruney came in and was horrible again. He gave up a line-out and a homer to make it 3-2. Coke and Hughes finished the inning.
Then it was the ninth. Jeter led off the inning with a walk. A-Rod had another two-run single to make it 5-2 Yanks. The Bombers went on to score five more runs in the inning, to make it a massive 10-2 lead. 
Hughes came back out for the ninth and struck out the side. 
Player of the Game: C.C. Sabathia: W, 7.0 IP, 7 H, ER, BB, 9 SO, 0 HR
The Wrap-Up:
Sabathia got his MLB leading 16th win of the season tonight. The Yanks are 37 games over .500, yet another high water mark. The Red Sox finally lost, so the Yankees are now 7.5 ahead in the East. It’s starting to smell a little comfortable in here. The Bombers have won six in a row.
Coming Up Next:
The Yanks fly north of the border to Toronto tonight. In the first of four, it’ll be Gaudin against Romero.

    it is great that the Yankees keep winning.

    It is amazing how they keep on coming back!! πŸ˜‰

    Could you please transfer some “W” over to the Indians?

    We could use them!!

    Well back to the drawing board for the Tribe:

    the Yanks might get knocked out of the playoffs though;

    IT COULD HAPPEN… πŸ˜‰

    Hope it doesn’t.
