The New York Yankees winning ways continue as CC Sabathia pitches a complete game to push the Yankees win streak to 10 in a row. The Yankees beat the Atlanta Braves 6-2 and now the team is 2-1/2 games ahead of Baltimore in the A.L. East. Sabathia only gave up two runs as he struck out 10 in the game on 116 pitches,84 of those pitches were strikes. Sabathia was in a zone, the Strike zone that is. The Yankees look like a team that can continue to win.
Things didn’t look good for the Yankees offense through the first four innings, they couldn’t get on the score board until the fifth inning. Once they team started to score they were able to pick up three runs in the fifth,and a run in the 6th, 7th and 8th innings to put the Braves away for the teams tenth win in a row. You can say the Yankees are on a role. If the other Yankees pitchers get inspired by Sabthia, the Yankees winning ways may not come to a halt anytime soon.
