7 2/3 of no-hit shutout ball from CC today before being taken out. He also walked 2 and K'd 5. I'd call that a much better second act after last Sunday.
And whataya know?! Mark Teixeira is 3-4 today with a ribbie and 2 runs scored. Either Joe is starting to develop psychic abilities or he paid off Wade Davis to serve a few over the plate today. Either way, Teix looked real good at the plate today and that's what's most important.
Still 8-0 in the top of the 9th, but the ending is just a formality now. The important thing is the Cy Young-caliber ace of the staff and MVP-caliber first baseman played more like the Cy Young- and MVP-caliber players they are.
