The CC Sabathia vs. Felix Hernandez debate may have ended last night as Sabathia dropped a big game to the Rays, allowing seven runs over just 5.1 innings. The Yankees eventually lost 10-3 at home.

Some highlights:

  • Sabathia was doing well enough through 5 innings. At one point he struck out 3 batters in a row looking. It all fell apart in the 6th though as he allowed a single, double, K, single, single, walk, and a walk before was relieved by Joba Chamberlain.
  • In the 7th Javier Vazquez did not help his own chances at making the playoff roster. He allowed two runs on zero hits thanks to a walk followed by then three consecutive hit batters.
  • The Yankees runs came from a Marcus Thames two-run homer and a Nick Swisher RBI single.
  • Swisher went 2-for-3 with a walk. Robinson Cano and Greg Golson were the only other players with at least two hits.
  • Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks.
  • Derek Jeter extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
  • David Price tossed 6 innings and allowed just 3 runs.
  • The Yankees’ lead in the AL East is just 0.5 games, and they have fallen behind the Minnesota Twins for the best record in baseball.

It was a tough series, and the Yankees came away from it with a split. Now they have nine games left—six against the Red Sox, and three against the Blue Jays.
