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.
