Game 18 | 10-8, T-1st : : Mets ace Matt Harvey cooled off Yankee bats, while the Amazins’ teed off on CC Sabathia to the tune of 7 earned runs in 5 innings, including 3 home runs. Sabathia dropped to an 0-4 mark, with a 5.96 ERA in 4 starts, and was booed by the home crowd after being pulled in the 5th.
The Yankees, whose four game win streak came to an end, did a lot of first pitch swinging against Harvey early on without success, which contributed to his low pitch count in the later innings.

Here’s the box score.

Game 18 Notes

  • Mark Teixiera   Another day, another dinger. Tex trails only Nelson Cruz (9) for the MLB lead in home runs with 8.
  • Jacoby Ellsbury   A gem of a centerfielder, making yet another great catch today.

  • CC Sabthia   The Big Man’s troubles are vexing. His previous start in Detroit was encouraging, scattering 7 hits over 8 innings while allowing only 2 earned runs against the potent Tigers lineup. You can’t say Detroit was slumping — they came into that series with the best record in MLB, and their ‘A’ lineup was on the field. In today’s start, Sabathia had location problems and trouble closing the deal with 2 strikes on a batter, as a K total of 2 reflects.
  • Didi Gregorius   After a short run of errorless games, and making a sensational leaping stab of a blistering John Mayberry, Jr. line drive in 3rd inning, Didi misjudged a very routine grounder in the 9th.
