~~ Yankees 6, Royals 2 ~~
What song? The sweet melody of CC Sabathia coming in and stopping a losing skid. After losing to the Royals, their first win at home, Yankees came back strong. CC’s line: 8 IP, 7 hits, 2 runs and 5 strike outs, bringing his record to 4-0. Then David Robertson comes in to close out the game. Not a save situation, but still a scoreless inning.
After two runs in the first inning, the Yankees didn’t score again until the 7th innning. Then they blew it out with 4 runs. In this game every Yankee got a hit except Nix, who was the unfortunate hitter of the fly ball that Mariano tripped trying to get. Speaking of Mariano, he came out and said he will be back. He may want to retire, but he doesn’t want to go out this way.
This is what I think, he is not a young man, that works against him, but he has taken care of himself, he’s not 42 and flabby, he’s 42 and fit. He also appears to not have stressed his system with too much working out or overindulgence in drink or food. That is in his favor. I really hope he can come back, it would be a shame for his career to end this way.
