CC Sabathia‘s pretty good at this whole pitching thing, huh?
Alex Rodriguez ain’t too shabby at hitting, either.
CC continued the string of flat-out dominating performances he began in June, hurling seven and two-thirds innings of one-run ball while scattering seven hits and striking out a season-high 10 en route to a 6-1 Yankee victory.
Perhaps more importantly, A-Rod hit two home runs in a game for the first time this season — though I’m still waiting for Alex and Mark Teixeira to go yard in the same game — including a huge grand slam in the third inning to break the game open and a solo shot to add to the Yankee lead in the sixth. Alex now has 597 career home runs — not to mention 21 career grand slams, moving him into a tie for second all-time with Manny Ramirez.
A’s starter and 2010 All-Star Trevor Cahill was touched up for six runs in six innings, and it was incredibly satisfying to see the Yankees actually get to a pitcher they’d never seen before.
We’ve all been waiting for A-Rod and Tex to start hitting, and if these last few weeks are any indication Yankee fans could be in for a real treat in the second half.
