Melky Cabrera Hits for Cycle, Yankees Win 8-5

Yankees White Sox Baseball

In a 3-0 win over the Chicago White Sox, the Yankees first in the series, Melky Cabrera had arguably his best game of his career. Going 4-5 with a single, double, triple and a home run, Cabrera became the 15th Yankee to hit for the cycle. In a game where CC Sabathia threw eight innings, the Yankee bats came threw to help Sabathia record his 11th win of the season while ending Mark Buerhle’s two game winning streak, which one of those games was a perfect game. With Cabrera collecting four of the eight runs, Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon, Jerry Hairston Jr and Jose Molina drove in the other four runs as the Yankees as a team had 14 hits and 12 of them coming in Buerhle’s 4.1 innings pitched, as terrible performance for Buerhle who broke the Major League record for consecutive batters set down with 45.

This title was the first for the Red Sox since 1918, and is a gut wrencher for any New York fan to date. When the playoff run was in full swing, to the average fan it looked like a magic filled cinderella story with characters like David Ortiz, being the no name player from Minnesota who magically came to life and fit the magic slipper on the bloody sock of longtime pitcher Curt Schilling. Manny Ramirez was the goofy carriage driver that seemed to back up Cinderella wherever she went and eventually led to the ring. Continue reading

Yankees Drop Two Against Chicago

Yankees White Sox Baseball

After a hot streak to start the second half of the season, AJ Burnett and the Yankees dropped their second game in a row in a 14-4 loss to Ozzie Guillen’s Chicago White Sox. After a rough second inning where Burnett allowed six runs, the White Sox jumped out to an early lead 6-0 lead. Burnett who had won his last five decisions, had trouble spotting his fastball and when he did the White Sox jumped on it. Continue reading
