The six-game winning streak is the longest by any team in baseball so far this season. Fun! He joined "Wild Bill" Hallahan (1930) as the only Cardinal to walk eight and strikeout 11. I can't trust the Cardinals for much of anything right now. "I couldn't quite get the grasp on the changeup and the fastball but thank god I was able to work through it and finally find a rhythm through the later innings". A win on Saturday would make the Yankees 5-0 at home for the first time since 2000. "He's got great stuff, and he was having a little bit of trouble getting into the zone".
ROYALS 7, ANGELS 1: Danny Duffy allowed three hits over seven innings and Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer for Kansas City at home.
Baseball baby! The St. Louis Cardinals are headed to the big apple for a game against the New York Yankees on April 14th at 7pm EST. Two batters later, a softly hit ground ball from Aaron Hicks led to Martinez throwing the ball well wide at home, allowing Torreyes to score. It's one of those that I spent a lot of time walking around in the bleachers, around the stadium. It's really working for him.
The Yankees got all they could out of Sabathia as he went 7.1 innings with only one earned run.
"It's just the first week", Sabathia said after his last start. But the Yankees Starlin Castro countered with a two run homer of his own in the Yankees first frame to tie the game 2-2 off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. Sabathina surpassed Hall of Famers Jim Bunning and Catfish Hunter for 66th place on the all-time wins list, mixing his combination of sliders and fastballs, while honoring the 70th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers. "It was a big day for baseball, African-American players". "But I felt fine this was a game we needed to win".
The Yankees won, 3-2; anyone who's been looking for a reason to gawk at old Nolan Ryan numbers also won. This team remains in motion after snaring another win against the struggling Cardinals as their record now moves to 7-4 on the season. While St. Louis was working its way out of a three-game losing skid, NY stringed together its own streak; four consecutive wins helped by a pair of excellent pitching performances and a nice mix of offensive contributions from the lineup. "That doesn't mean that's the team we're destined to be".
Tottenham keep up Chelsea chase with 4-0 rout of Bournemouth
Sunderland remain on the brink of relegation despite salvaging a 2-2 draw against West Ham at the Stadium of Light. But substitute Peter Crouch's header and Xherdan Shaqiri's 30-yard rocket steered the Potters to all three points.
For whatever reason Girardi opted to replace Warren with Tyler Clippard for the ninth inning - he said after the game it was because Clippard has more experience closing, so yeah, there's the reason - and it did not go smoothly.
Holliday played seven seasons in St. Louis prior to signing with the Yankees last winter.
There was plenty more star power on the field last time both clubs met in NY in 2003; the Rocket, Moose and Mo were in pinstripes, and opposing managers Joe Girardi and Mike Matheny were teammates on the Cardinals.
Sunday night's contest has the potential to be a great; Adam Wainwright and Michael Pineda close out the series. Holliday was replaced by 1B/DH Chris Carter, who struck out four times in five at-bats.
CC Sabathia, meanwhile, continued his stellar start to the season.
