Hafner Carries Yankees To Victory Over Toronto, 5-4

Going into the 2013 MLB season, I would have called you crazy if you said the older free agents signed during the off-season would help carry the Yankees to a good start and maintain relevancy in the American League East. However, that has been exactly the case, and this afternoon was another perfect example of that.

The Yankees trailed the Blue Jays 3-0 in the bottom of the 4th, when Travis Hafner blasted a 3-run HR to tie the game. And then, with the game tied at 4 in the bottom of the 7th, Hafner drove in the game-winning run with an RBI triple, giving him a 4-RBI day en route to a 5-4 victory for New York.

CC Sabathia battled through some early struggles, ultimately giving up all four Toronto runs and nine hits over his 8 innings of work. He improved to 4-2 on the season with a 3.35 ERA, while Joba Chamberlain got through a dramatic top of the 9th for his first save since 2010.

The Yankees will go for a sweep of their 4-game series against the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon, as Phil Hughes takes on R.A. Dickey at 1:05 p.m. You can catch all of the action starting at 12:30 p.m. with the Yankees Radio Network broadcast on 104.5 “The Team!”
