The Blue Jays didn't stand a chance.
I take back everything bad I've ever said about CC Sabathia. Today's 6 1/3, one-run performance makes four straight strong starts. He's striking out batters again. With Masahiro Tanaka's future looking uncertain, Sabathia is now firmly entrenched as the Yankee #3 starter. Good for him.
But the big story of the night was Gary Sanchez:
You have to feel like more home runs are coming for Sanchez. Tonight brought his batting line all the way up to .270/.369/.470, but the statcast numbers suggest he could be even better. Here's Sanchez's home runs:
- 110 mph, 426 ft
- 112 mph, 448 ft
- 108 mph, 428 ft
- 104 mph, 429 ft
- 113 mph, 440 ft
- 112 mph, 434 ft
When Sanchez connects, he hits the ball like Aaron Judge. Damn.
Brett Gardner also had his 1,000th career hit. Congratulations, Brett!
