Here’s how you do it when are an ace. You’ve been spotted an early six-run lead and you’ve cruised through the first five innings. But then, some bumps, and you allow a couple of runs in the sixth and a two-run homer in the seventh. You’re team is done scoring for afternoon and the back-end of your bullpen is tired and unavailable. So what do you do? You go out and retire the side in the eighth and then do it again in the ninth and you get the damn win.
C.C. Sabathia is an ace and he proved why this afternoon.
Final Score: Yanks 6, Indians 4.
