*SABATHIA STEALS HOME*

   – *WHAT’S GOING ON TOMARROW?*

Chad Gaudin (5-10) vs. Brett Anderson (7-8)

   – *AN EXCELLENT WIN FOR CC*

   We’ve all heard the story by now. “Despite being from the area, Sabathia just can’t seem to keep it together when he faces Oakland…” We’re told throughout our childhood that history tends to repeat itself – but in yesterday’s matchup, CC defied the odds…

   Coming off a two-game slide, the Yankees headed back to ‘The Coliseum’ in desperate need of a win. Partly because we haven’t lost consecutive games in a while, but also because the Red Sox defeated the Jays by a single run. We can’t let the Sox climb any closer to first – so we picked an excellent day to give CC run support, and brake “the curse of the hometown hero.

   Jeter did what Jeter always does. A three-hit night, with an RBI and a single run scored. Damon, Matsui, and Melky contributed an additional 6 hits – and despite being tied heading out of the 5th – the Yankees posted 5 runs in the 6th inning alone to secure Sabathia’s victory. It was the run support that determiend the outcome of this game, because without that huge inning – the game could of easily been Oakland’s for the taking…

   Congratulations CC – the curse has been lifted. The Mighty Ducks have won the championship, and Bastian from ‘The Never-Ending Story’ has given the child-like empress a name! (Had to drop the throwbacks…)

    I was so glad for CC that he won at home in front of his family and friends. The A’s and their four errors didn’t hurt, but he pitched really well and earned the “W.” Now we need to finish up strong in Oakland and head to Boston with confidence!
