Highlighted information from the Yankees’ media relations department:

TWO-FER: The Yankees have scored 11 of their 14 runs with two outs over the first two games of this series.

MY FAVORITE MARTIN: C Russell Martin has gone 6-for-14 (.429) with 3R, 1 double, 2HR and 7RBI over his last four games…had hit 2HR and driven in seven runs total over his previous 28 games from 7/30-9/2…Martin’s last four run-producing hits have given the Yankees the lead.

This year Sabathia has NOT been the ace that the Yankees have paid for. His performance’s have been average at best.
