That game was actually a lot worse than I imagined it would be.
Honestly, I knew the lineup would probably do nothing against Matt Moore. They can’t hit lefties as it is but a guy with 1.00 ERA coming into the game? Yeah…
And I was right but I was hoping CC Sabathia would be able keep the Yankees in this one. Unfortunately, after the first inning, the Yankees found themselves down 4-0.
For his part, Sabathia recovered and ended up pitching seven innings but the damage was done and the Yankees couldn’t do much against Moore who pitched eight strong innings.
Sabathia finished with eight strikeouts but gave up three home runs and two of them were to Ryan Roberts.
It was that kind of night.
