CC Sabathia fired up in Yankees' victory over Red Sox

Sabathia, Yankees top Red Sox, 6-2 Greg Bird and Gary Sanchez to sound the charge

Sabathia did both Thursday night when he pitched six gritty innings as the Yankees opened a crucial four-game series against Boston with a 6-2 victory.

"I just feel like they're taking the weak road", said Sabathia, who improved to 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in four starts against the Red Sox this season.

NOTES: Toronto 1B Justin Smoak (calf) sat out, and 3B Josh Donaldson also did not play, just to give him a day off. Boston INF Josh Rutledge (hip) had arthroscopic surgery on his left hip and is expected to be ready for the 2018 season.

"I don't think it's a coincidence", NY manager Joe Girardi said.

He said the Red Sox show him "too much respect". "They should want to go out and kick my butt".

"If I have to bunt four times in a row, I'll do it".

"Just kind of weak to me". Greg Bird hit a two-run home run to extend the lead - it was only Bird's second hit off a lefty this season - and the Yankees would tack on another run that inning, then another the following frame. This weekend set in the Bronx marks the final meeting of the season between the longtime rivals - and perhaps New York's last chance to make a serious run at its first division title in five years.

Using a sharp slider, Sabathia struck out six. "I think it's who he is and what's made him so great for so long".

NOTES: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he expects the suspensions for Cs Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine to be staggered once their appeals are heard, which could be Friday. He surrendered one earned run on three hits with nine strikeouts and two walks in seven innings during a 6-3 home win over the Mariners his last time out. He was done after six, NY won 6-2, and Sabathia improved to 4-0 vs. Boston in 2017. "Whether it's CC or other left-handers, we're still searching". They tied it 1-all on Sanchez's 28th homer in the third and went ahead when Nunez, the second baseman, misplayed Sanchez's popup into an RBI single in the fifth.

Nunez already had something to say. They did put runners on base with a walk and an error to start the eighth inning, but they failed to capitalize, which was a theme of the night.

Elsewhere in the wild-card neighborhood, over at Target Field, the Twins scored two runs in the ninth and beat the White Sox yesterday on a walk- off hit-by-pitch to stay within a game of the Yankees.
