vs.

CC starts his 19th season  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:10 pm : link
let's hope he can stay on the hill all the way to that championship ending.
CC starts  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:13 pm : link
1-2-3 with some weak contact on display.

I hope Happ is watching now its done.
they shift on Gardner  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:17 pm : link
he pushes one to LF for an infield hit. Love Gritner.
DJ  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:25 pm : link
with an excellent AB. I'm glad he was moved up in the order. He is easily the best overall hitter on the current squad.
Torres  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:28 pm : link
gets umped by about 8 inches.

Barrett can get a kick in the nuts for that one.
CC looks hungry through 2  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 1:38 pm : link
now get this man some runs.
CC was outstanding  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 2:53 pm : link
sadly, Nova matched him and then some.

some great defensive plays by Anderson to rob Judge and Wade flashing leather.

Bird whiffs at the plate and in the field today. Not whelmed.
Bird's last AB  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:04 pm : link
in what should have been a DP, he sure looked like he pulled something chugging down the line.
Bird stinks  
nygnyy274 : 4/13/2019 3:06 pm : link
Yankees should seriously consider Justin Smoak
Frazier continues  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:08 pm : link
to poke the ball to RF.

Bases load and none out. Let's get this done.
Voit finally delivers  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:10 pm : link
broken bat floater over the SS.

1-0

bases juiced for Higgy
Garcia robs Higgy  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:11 pm : link
and he gets a key SF.

2-0
Wade with a safety squeeze  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:14 pm : link
3-0
btw  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:14 pm : link
if we win this, i'm not taking any credit.
Judge with a much needed  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 3:26 pm : link
laser to RF and out.

4-0
Nice win.  
Dave in Hoboken : 4/13/2019 3:39 pm : link
Chapman was dealing today. Good first outing for CC. Hopefully, he can continue that. We need him right now (and really, all the help we can get until some of our wounded come back).
Also, FYI  
Dave in Hoboken : 4/13/2019 3:39 pm : link
Chappy hit 99 on the gun today. That's pretty good. It's not even hot out yet, just a bit on the warmer side.
Chapman had mostly 100mph  
RasputinPrime : 4/13/2019 4:23 pm : link
and his slider was nasty.

The staff ate the Sox alive today. Great win.
Yanks scored a few runs with an RBI single, a sac fly  
mfsd : 4/13/2019 4:59 pm : link
and a safety squeeze...that should make the “can’t win a championship relying on home runs” crowd happy for a day
CC - the calming factor.

Wel said section.

How many times last year did CC take the hill and stop a losing streak or even just after a loss and put them right? Seemed like almost every start.

He just knows how to pitch. What was it? One hit?

Yup. Coming off a heart procedure, limited spring, and making his first start of the year, ( not to mention the bad knee) it was really impressive.

It was just what they needed and you couldn't be more right about the calming factor. It was like, don't worry fellas I got us covered.
Nice win

CC was great.

CC made everything feel right again.

Let's keep it going today, boys. Would be great to take this series after that miserable Friday night rain-shortened game.
Can't say enough about what CC did yesterday  
NoGainDayne : 4/14/2019 11:21 am : link
the team was looking lifeless after Friday night.

He handed them the game. German too was great. Nice to know it does look like we have someone to step in if Happ keeps looking like he forgot how to pitch.

Holding my breath with German. They need to hit on one of the young guys. He has looked very under control so far.
Yeah he just needs to trust his stuff IMO  
NoGainDayne : 4/14/2019 11:52 am : link
looking like he is doing that more this year especially the last few outings.

But he had some strings of that and also nibbling last year. Hopefully he has it figured out.
