I missed this one, so this’ll be a quickie. Despite going eight innings and striking out seven, CC Sabathia gave up a career-high five home runs (all of the solo variety) as the Yankees fell to David Price and the Rays by a score of 5-1. While it’s always strange to see the big man turn in a less-than-desirable outing, it’s not entirely surprising, as CC’d been rocking a seriously low HR/9 all season. Still, I’d imagine watching Casey Kotchman and Kelly Shoppach hit back-to-back homers in the third was pretty aggravating. Interestingly, Shoppach is one of three Rays with very good career numbers (.280/.400/.440) against Sabathia; the other two are fellow solo-home-run-hitters-from-last-night Johnny Damon (.276/.344/.483) and Evan Longoria, who apparently crushes Sabathia (.357/.500/.893).
Anyway, fortunately they go right back at it again this afternoon. A couple of us TYAers are getting together for this one; should be a good time.
