NEW YORK — With a 3 game winning streak going into Thursday nights game, the Yankees were headed against the ace of Tampa Bay, Chris Archer. C.C Sabathia took the mound for New York, posting up 4.1 innings with 5 hits, 4 ER, and 3 K’s. Not his best work this year. The bullpen came in early but did what they seem to do almost every night. Slow the momentum and shut it down. With innings from Green, Kahnle, Betances, Warren, and Chapman, the Bronx Bombers bullpen held the Rays to only 1 earned run the rest of the game. Although C.C wasn’t on his best, the offense never stopped fighting. Down 5-4 in the bottom of the 9th, Gary Sanchez put the bat on the ball with a single up the middle, scoring Brett Gardner and essentially tying the game. Although this wouldn’t be the last time we would see Gardner. Still tied in the bottom of the 11th, Brett hit a frozen rope over the right field wall to walk the Yankees off and keep the winning streak alive.
