This one had lots of everything. Twelve runs. Fifteen hits. Four errors. One Texas Catcher tossed in the eighth inning. A bunch of lousy officiating calls. A bad outing from CC Sabathia. Two homers from Derek Jeter, who had four hits on the game. A homer from Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira each. But nothing was more shocking than the Francisco Cervelli grand slam! Cervelli has only two homers in his career, and now has as many career grand slams as Jeter.
Sabathia struggled in this one, and put up a stat line reflective of the odd game. CC pitched into the seventh inning, allowing five hits, five runs, three of them earned, with four walks and two strikeout on 109 pitches. It wasn’t CC’s best work, but how can you lose a game when the offense gives you twelve runs?
The Yankees actually trailed four nothing at one point in the game, but mounted an impressive comeback, and then ran up the score. Jeter started everything in the third with an RBI single. It snow balled from there. David Bush started the game for the Rangers, replacing an injured Alexi Ogando (blisters). Perhaps the game would have been different had Ogando been healthy, but he wasn’t and the Yankees rolled.
The Yankees have an off day Monday, after having played sixteen consecutive games. They start another sixteen game stretch against the Royals on Tuesday. Kyle Davies pitches against Freddy Garcia. The game starts at seven.
