Luke's Yankees Roundup: Yankees 'Sale' To Win Over Red Sox
The Yankees picked up a much needed victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park tonight. 37-year-old lefty CC Sabathia pitched a near flawless game to put them only 4 games back in the AL standings.
Sadly, Aaron Judges woes continued as he now holds the MLB record for the most consecutive games with a strikeout with 36, but at least he has 37 home runs to make up for it; He also went 0 for 4 with a walk and 3 strikeouts.
Didi and Todd continue to stay hot which is great. Since Aroldis Chapman has been removed as closer, Dellin Betances came in (Great Choice by Joe) to get the save.
Meanwhile in the minors Greg Bird and Starlin Castro continue to make great progress as Greg goes 2 for 4 with a run and Starlin goes 1 for 3 with a run.
In conclusion -
•CC Sabathia gets the win (10-5)
• Chris Sale picks up the loss (14-5)
• Dellin Betances notches the save (9)
