CC Sabathia threw a no-hitter into the 8th inning, as the New York Yankees bounced back to crush the Tampa Bay Rays 10-0, on a game you probably saw since it was televised nationally on FOX. CC Sabathia showed why he is the Yankees ace and one of the best pitchers of the 21st century by dominating one of the best lineups in baseball.
Of course, based on manager Joe Girardi’s controversial comments after the game, it appears that CC’s no hitter would not have been allowed to continue. Girardi echoed what FOX announcer Tim McCarver said: that Sabathia was limited to 110-115 pitches, and that would have been CC’s last at bat anyway. Statements like that make fans angry and upset, and with good reason. But let’s not allow this stupidity to get in the way of a great Yankees win. Joe Torre had pulled David Cone and Phil Hughes from completing their no-hit bids, so their is a Yankees precedence for this.
Mark Teixeira finally did well this week, and Robinson Cano is staying hot. Brett Gardner deserves to start every day, and Curtis Granderson showed he can hit lefties. Derek Jeter is getting his hits in, and the Yankees lineup looks great.
Anyway, Francisco Cervelli was awesome in every way, from his call calling, to his chemistry with CC, to his bat, and to him expressions- what a great backup catcher.
