Inept defense is nice to play against

Three Met errors in one inning led to four Yankee runs. With Sabathia at the helm, the Yankees cruised to a 9-1 win.

CC was brilliant in one of his best games of the year. He was perfect through four, eventually throwing seven and allowing just three baserunners (with eight Ks and no walks). The only blemish was a Gary Sheffield homerun in the fifth; that was the only inning that any baserunner reached off Sabathia. He had his best fastball of the year, averaging 94 MPH and topping out at 98. Not to be forgotten is the RBI single he hit in the third inning.

How about our 'lil Brett Gardner? 5-6 with a homer, a triple, three singles (a double shy of the cycle) and a stolen base. His batting average now stands at a robust .303.

Despite scoring nine runs, they should've had more. 3-17 with RISP will often hurt your chances to win, but not when the opponent commits three errors and your starter gives seven and one.

The Yankees had 14 hits and six walks. Ramiro Pena doubled twice. A-Rod homered and walked thrice. The only Yankee starter not to reach base was Frankie Cervelli (0-5).

Even Brett Tomko looked good, throwing two perfect frames to finish the match.
