C.C. Sabathia allowed five runs – three earned – in his last outing leading to a loss even though he struck out a season-high twelve batters. He faces the Braves for the Bombers while Mike Minor gets the mound against the Yankees. Keep one eye on the Trop where the Mets will be facing Rays. Comment away.

No HR’s so no score in the 1st…
CC is pitching like…well…CC.
Which is to say horribly these days…
Walks the bases loaded with 1 out…
How many will he give up?
Well done CC.
You certainly are an Ace.
0-3 after 1.
What the hell is up with cc lately. Everyone on the team can pitch now except him. Frustration.
If they ever ALL put it together IH?
We’ll be deadly.
Yep…the big IF…
CC – his fastball = a very average overweight pitcher
But not pretty.
We need runs.
4 innings of failure.
One of those games it seems.
0-3 after 4.
Horrible bunt by CC…out at 2nd and could have easily been a DP if the SS hadn’t dropped the transfer…
Another inning of nothing.
4 hits through 4.5
Couple more runs and this one is toast.
That’s more like it.
3-4-5 for the Yankees…
This game blows.
Will we ever score?
Jeter and Curtis single with 1 out…
This is the game.
Walks the bases loaded.
I’m not even going to say it.
3-0 to 3-2…almost fouled out…
COME ON AROD!!!!!!
SWISHER GOES YARD!!!!!!!
6-4 after Cano singled!!!!!
I don’t think I have ever heard a louder road Yankee contingent than the one in Atlanta tonight.
‘splosion! Sorry I missed most of it.
6-4 going into the final frame…
Prior to tonight, ARod came up with the bases loaded 280 times, and hit .342 on his way to tying Gehrig..
That was fucking awesome.
THAT is the kind of win that makes you think this team has it in them.
CLUTCH hits…HR’s…but hits!
5 in a row.
What a win. Felt miles away until that inning. Great to see arod come through. And the pen comes right in and closes it out without any drama.
