Sabathia Sparkles as Yankees Down Red Sox
Throwing at up to 94 mph after two months of decreased velocity, Sabathia matched his season high with 10 strikeouts while pitching into the eighth inning to lead New York over the Boston Red Sox 4-1 on Friday night and stop the Yankees’ season-high, five-game losing streak.
Out since injuring his right wrist March 5, Teixeira made his season debut and was 0-for-3 with a walk. Youkilis, sidelined by a back injury since April 27, was 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the fifth.
