As mentioned before, the Yankees scored enough runs to win them five games depending on the day, of course. But CC Sabathia pitched six innings and labored but allowed only two runs. Shawn Greene allowed the other two Boston runs as he couldn't get an out and forced Girardi to use Adam Warren for 1.2 innings before having Robertson close the game out, just to get some pitches in after not throwing since coming off the DL. Sabathia wins his third game against two losses and the Yankees remain in first place in the AL East.
Overall, this was a successful road trip as the Yankees took two of four against the Rays and two of three games against the Red Sox for a 4-3 road trip before coming back to Yankee Stadium to welcome in Mike Trout and the Angels. Hiroki Kuroda will pitch for the Yankees and the Yankees will see three straight lefty starters this weekend beginning with CJ Wilson tomorrow night.
