Hey, a win! I didn't see a single pitch of this one and I'm taking safety training classes in the office on a Saturday morning. We're doing bullet points: - CC Sabathia walked the tightrope in every one of his 4.2 innings, and somehow he managed to escape it with only 3 runs against him. When he's not on his game, you have no choice but to take that from him.
- Very nice job backing CC up by Ivan Nova, who tossed 2.1 perfect innings to bridge the gap to the back end of the bullpen and gave the offense a chance to come back.
- That comeback was sparked by a Jacoby Ellsbury steal of home in the bottom of the 5th to tie the game at 3. It was an incredibly ballsy play on his part, stealing home in a full count with 2 outs, and he pulled it off. This after the diving catch the other night and he went 2-3 with a double and 2 RBI in relief of Aaron Hicks. More, please.
- Hicks left the game after injuring his shoulder diving to make a catch. Doesn't sound serious, but he might get a day or 2 off.
- 6 up, 6 down for Millances. 5 strikeouts.
