New York Yankees shutout the Boston Red Sox behind a strong CC Sabathia

The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 8-0.  CC Sabathia started for the Yankees and pitched brilliantly.  Chris Carter led the offense with three hits and four RBI and Starlin Castro, Didi Gregorius and Chase Headley each had two hits. 

Sabathia pitched eight shutout innings giving up five hits.  He walked none and struck out five and won his seventh game of the season.  Jonathan Holder pitched a perfect inning. 

Rick Porcello started for the Red Sox and took his eighth loss of the season.  He pitched 6 1/3 innings giving up eight hits and six runs with five of them being earned.  He walked two and struck out five.  Blaine Boyer pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up four hits and two runs with a walk and two strikeouts. 

Brett Gardner had a hit and an RBI, Aaron Hicks drew a walk and Aaron Judge drew a walk.  Matt Holliday had a hit and an RBI, Castro had two hits and Gary Sanchez had a hit and an RBI.  Gregorius had two hits and an RBI, Headley had two hits and drew a walk and Carter had three hits and four RBI which could have been more if a catch had been ruled a homerun since the fan touched it before Betts caught it but those are the breaks.  Castro hit a triple and Gregorius and Carter each hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 5-12 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.  Gardner had a stolen base.

Chris Young had a hit, Xander Bogaerts had a hit and Sam Travis had a hit.  Josh Rutledge had two hits including a double and a triple.  The Red Sox were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Marrero and Rutledge each committed an error. 

In the third Gregorius hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Sanchez hit an RBI single to extend the lead to 2-0.  Carter hit a three-run homerun and it was 5-0 Yankees.  In the seventh Holliday hit an RBI single to extend the lead to 6-0 and in the eighth Carter hit an RBI single to make it 7-0.  Gardner hit an RBI single and it was 8-0 and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play the rubber game of the series on Thursday night.
