Yankees offense rolls and CC dominates in Yankees victory

The New York Yankees defeated the Cleveland Indians by the score of 9-2 on Tuesday night.  CC Sabathia pitched seven shutout innings.  It was the big mans fifth straight victory.  He failed to make the All Star Team but he sure is pitching like an All Star.  He leads the major leagues with 12 wins and is 12-4 on the season with a 2.90 ERA. 

Curtis Granderson continued his great season hitting two homeruns.  He has 25 on the season which is one more then he had all of last season.  His career high is 30 which he accomplished in 2009 with the Detroit Tigers.  Derek Jeter had two hits and is now four away from 3000.  He has one more game in Cleveland tomorrow if he plays and then the four at home against the Tampa Bay Rays before the All Star Break.  He would like to get it at home against the Rays. 

Francisco Cervelli was the only starter who didn't have at least two hits.  Granderson had three and every other starter had two hits.  The Yankees will try and win their eighth straight series tomorrow.  It will be Phil Hughes against Justin Masterson in the pitching matchup.  Hughes hasn't pitched in the major leauges since April.  He underwent a successful rehab stint and the Yankees are anxious to see what he could give them the rest of this season.  They are confident he is past his arm troubles and ready to be more like the guy he was last year when he won 18 games. 

The game will be on tomorrow night at 7:00PM on the YES Network.  The Yankees don't play a lot of day games on get away day for whatever reason.  I would assume it's because it is the Yankees and they get better ratings at night.
