Rangers Vs. Yankees, ALCS Game 5: CC Sabathia Works Around Another Baserunner

CC Sabathia's motto today is apparently 'bend, but don't break.'

For the third consecutive inning, Sabathia allowed a Ranger hit, and for the third consecutive inning, Sabathia kept the Rangers scoreless. This time, he allowed an infield single to Elvis Andrus on a swinging bunt with one out in the third. It wasn't hit well, so you can't actually blame Sabathia for this one - it was just placed perfectly, and when Alex Rodriguez gave up on it in an attempt to let it roll foul, it came to a stop right on the line.

With Andrus on first, Michael Young came up and hit a grounder that allowed Andrus to advance to second. Andrus then stole third with two outs and Josh Hamilton at the plate, but Hamilton - on a full count - lined out to Derek Jeter at short to end the inning.

Some good luck and bad luck for the Rangers in the same frame, and it's 3-0 New York entering the bottom of the third.
