It wasn’t the easiest of outings for CC Sabathia, but when aces don’t have their best stuff they still find a way to win. That’s exactly what the big man did today, giving his club six hard-fought innings before handing the ball off to the bullpen with a lead. The offense finally woke up a little, with Robbie Cano, Nick Swisher, and Curtis Granderson all going deep for solo shots in the 7-2 win. The Yankees are still down three games to two in the ALCS, but they’re on their way back to Texas for Game Six. That’s all you can ask for.
Anyway, here’s your open thread for the evening. Game Four of the NLCS is starting pretty much right now on FOX, with San Fran leading the series two games to one. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball against Joe Blanton. You’ve also got the Yanks’ postgame on YES. Chat about that, or whatever else you want.
