Pronk Proves to be Key
CC Sabathia battled tonight, going eight innings and allowing four runs (three earned). CC gave the Yankees a chance to win, despite the Yankees being in a 3-0 hole early. This team is different from Yankees teams in years past. They are gritty and gutty, and take each at-bat seriously. That's how this team of replacements has done so well this year. Eventually the injuries will catch up and the team will level off but it's nice to see they are playing so well. I give a lot of credit to Girardi and the front office for assembling this team that people were laughing at after the first two games of the season against the Red Sox.
The Yankees will try for a four game sweep tomorrow afternoon when Phil Hughes takes the mound to face RA Dickey who has fared better in his last couple of starts. Dickey lost his last start against the Orioles but pitched well after a crooked inning.
