CC Sabathia once was a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians. Now all he does is win baseball games for his New York Yankees. Sabathia pitched a complete game to get his Yankees into the A.L.C.S.. Sabathia was on a mission to get his team in pin stripes past the Baltimore Orioles and he did it with an overwhelming style. Sabathia was able to hold the Orioles to just 4 hits and 1 run in the 9 innings he pitched. He struck out 9 batters and only walked 2 in a game he dominated. Sabthia is proving he is worth every penny the New York Yankees are paying him and then some.
Now, it is off to tame those Detroit Tigers for the Yankees for a chance to make yet another world series appearance. The Yankees should be able to get past Detroit. The Tigers struggled to win the American League Central in a division that wasn’t very strong. Detroit did play well against the Oakland Athletics to move onto the A.L.C.S.. The A’s aren’t the Yankees and this series is going to be a battle for the Tigers.
The Yankees keep finding a way to win and with Sabthia pitching the way he has, the team from the big apple are going to give the Tigers more than their high-priced players can handle. Sabthia seems to get stronger as the team moves closer to the World Series. You can count on the fact he will bring his A game when he gets his chance against the Tigers.
It is going to be interesting to see just how tough the Yankees can get when they face Detroit. Tell us what you think, just leave your comments below…..
