The Yankees won one of the best games I have seen in a while yesterday defeating the Indians 1-0 behind another strong pitching performance by Chien Ming Wang. Wang attacked the strike zone with the best sinker he has had all year and then put batters away with an absolutely filthy slider. Wang is already 5-0 and it isn’t even May yet. Indians starter C.C Sabathia looked like the pitcher that he should be yesterday with his only blemish being giving up a long home run to Melky Cabrera (who has 5 HR already).
This was the win the Yankees needed with Wang going seven, Joba pitching a scoreless eighth, and Mo slamming the door in the ninth.
Sometimes its nice to watch a pitchers duel and with Wang on the hill every five days there will be many more great performances….
You can count on that
