I feel like I need a cigarette after watching Masahiro Tanaka‘s splitter. My goodness.
The good news about today’s game? The starters – CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Tanaka – all looked good in their six innings of work as so did Dellin Betances and Cesar Cabral in their three innings combined.
The starters’ lines:
CC – 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
HIROK – 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
TANAK – 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 K
Derek Jeter scored on Cervelli’s single and looked fine running the bases. He also participated in a nifty double play in the second play and looked no worse for the wear.
