CC Sabathia continued his marvelous June run, throwing eight innings of one-run, seven-strikeout ball (lowering his ERA to 3.49); Alex Rodriguez drove in both Yankee runs — including a booming go-ahead solo home run that would prove to be the game-winner; and Mariano Rivera struck out the Dodgers’ 4-5-6 hitters — including perennial Yankee killer Manny Ramirez — in order, leading the Yankees to a big 2-1 win over Los Angeles.
Vicente Padilla pitched quite a game himself (&IP;, 2ER, 7Ks), keeping the Yankees off-balance all night with a ridiculous 55mph curveball in between pounding the plate with 94mph fastballs.
And to cap it all off, Boston lost to San Francisco, while the Rays were no-hit for the second time this season! The Yankees now hold a three game lead on both AL East rivals.
