For anyone who cares…the Boston Red Sox are having issues:
BOSTON — When his opportunity came to make the slow walk to the center of Fenway Park, CC Sabathia had the luxury of looking out to left field and seeing a run already on the board. It was pleasant, but certainly no surprise.
The Yankees made sure to give their left-handed ace all the support he needed to become the Major Leagues’ first 15-game winner, belting a career-high five home runs off Josh Beckett in an 8-4 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday.
Derek Jeter deposited Beckett’s first offering over the wall in right field for the 2,700th hit of his career, and Hideki Matsui crushed a pair of round-trippers as New York wrapped up a 10-game road trip with its seventh victory and the Bombers’ 15th series win in 17 tries.
