C.C. Sabathia came to pitch tonight as the New York Yankees knocked off the Boston Red Sox by the final of 2-1 in the Bronx.

C.C. Sabathia decided to turn back the clock on Thursday night in the Bronx. Not only did he only allow just one run over six innings, but he struck out eight.

The New York Yankees barely edged the Boston Red Sox 2-1 in the rubber game of this three-game series.

On the other side rookie Eduardo Rodriguez did his job in making this a pitcher’s duel. His seven innings only yielded two runs and six hits.

This is two nights in a row now that the Bronx Bombers have failed to score more than two runs. This, after a nine game stretch which featured a total of 90 runs.

Jacoby Ellsbury, however, turned out to be the offensive hero. His two-run shot in the seventh-inning gave New York lead they wouldn’t let slip away.

Justin Wilson, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller all pitched an inning each to finish the night off the right way.

The Yanks will turnaround and welcome in the ultra hot Toronto Blue Jays tomorrow night.
