C.C. Shines, Yankees Sweep The Tribe!

C.C. Sabathia firing a pitch against the Indians

“[A complete game] means a lot,” Sabathia said, “especially the way our bullpen’s been taxed a little bit.”

“The swings that the guys are taking, they’re not on top of the ball,” catcher Chris Stewart said of the increased velocity. “It’s nothing different than what happened last year. Same thing.” – nypost

Mets break out of slump, Marlon Byrd calls out two HR’s and hits them in the same game

C.C. Sabathia has started to come back in his own, and shined in the NY Yankees 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians yesterday! C.C. pitched a complete game, his 10th as a Yankee and 36th of his career, retiring the first 14 batters, and firing off nine strikeouts! He has gotten his velocity back up to 94 mph and overpowering hitters with his split-finger fastball and strengthy sinker! C.C. bettered his record to (6-4) with a 3.74 ERA! Brett Gardner and Travis Hafner hit homeruns to start it off for the Yankees yesterday! The Yankees turned it around sweeping the Tribe the last three games after dropping 7-of-8 against the Rays, Mets and Red Sox! The Yankees bettered their record to (34-25) and now are on the heels of rival Boston Red Sox (36-24) in the AL East!
