Our concern for C.C. Sabathia took a hiatus last night as the Big Fella delivered a fine performance highlighted by a beautiful slider. Word is he pitches better when it’s hot. Well it sure was hot and he sure was good.
I missed it on the count of I was out to dinner but was more than somewhat encouraged when I checked the score on my phone and later still, on the subway ride through the Bronx, listened to ol’ Silver Throat Sterling call the 9th inning where Mariano Rivera slid into and out of trouble.
Final Score: Yanks 4, Sox 1.
