Yankees veteran CC Sabathia leaves Game 4 with injury in potential last career appearance

1 month ago   |   By Yardbarker

CC Sabathia's final career appearance may have come in Game 4 of the ALCS on Thursday night, and if so, ended in injury. Sabathia made a relief appearance in Game 4 with his team down 7-3 to the Houston Astros. He got two outs, hit a batter, and had George Springer 2-1 before getting hurt. Team trainer Steve Donahue came out for a mound visit and the lefty tried to make one throw. The throw did not go well, so Sabathia left the mound. It is not yet clear how Sabathia was injured. Game 5 on Friday is scheduled to be the Yankees' last home game of the series, making this potentially...

1 month ago   |   By Yardbarker

The New York Yankees entered the sixth inning desperately needing a spark. Suddenly, All-Star catcher Gary Sanchez delivered it and got Yankee Stadium rocking in the process. Sanchez stepped into the batter's box facing a five-run deficit and a cold stretch at the plate he couldn't seem to snap. One bad pitch from Houston Astros reliever Josh James gave him the spark as Sanchez unloaded for a two-run blast to make it a 6-3 game. Sanchez came into Thursday's game in a 2-for-21 slump with 10 strikeouts this postseason. Things only got worse for him in the first inning when he struck out with...

Houston Astros catcher Robinson Chirinos did what he needed to do to ensure his pitchers could see his signs on Thursday night during Game 4 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium.

Watch: George Springer unleashes three-run, go-ahead HR in ALCS Game 4

1 month ago   |   By Yardbarker

The Houston Astros have been waiting for George Springer to come alive again in October. He came alive on Thursday night with a three-run, go-ahead blast in Game 4 of the ALCS. New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, who came into the start on an incredible stretch of success in the postseason, allowed a walk and single to begin the inning. When he hung a splitter up just enough in the zone, Springer punished it for the go-ahead blast. Springer entered the playoffs with 12 career postseason home runs in three years. He got off to a woeful start in the ALDS, but now seems to be...
