Yankees Get Back To Winning Against The Red Sox

After getting swept by the crosstown Mets, the Yankees really needed a bounce back performance against the Red Sox in the Bronx. C.C. Sabathia delivered just that, leading the Yankees to a 4-1 win.

The Yankee ace, who had been struggling, threw 7.1 innings of one run ball, allowing six hits and striking out ten. He out-dueled Boston’s Jon Lester, who was mildly roughed up to the tune of four earned over 6.1 innings of work. C.C. moved to 5-4 on the season while Lester was handed just his second loss of the season.

Mark Teixeira was held hitless in his season debut but did score the game’s first run after a walk and a Jayson Nix single to left field. Kevin Youkilis also returned to the line-up, and delivered and RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. Ichiro and Brett Gardner also drove in runs for the Bombers. The only run Boston was able to muster came in the top of the 7th when Mike Napoli doubled in Dustin Pedroia.

Mariano Rivera bounced back from his blown save in Citi Field, recording his league leading 19th save. Joe Girardi was ejected from the game in the fifth inning after arguing a call unsuccessfully.
