Taking the mound in the a win-or-go-home Game 4 against the Red Sox, Yankees LHP CC Sabathia may have toed the rubber for the last time in pinstripes. And, if that's the case, this definitely isn't the way he wanted to go out.
It was an eventful first inning for the big lefty, as he saw a bases-loaded scenario with two outs and Ian Kinsler at the plate. He avoided a first-inning surge, though, as Kinsler flew out to Brett Gardner in left field.
After a quiet second inning, the Red Sox offense turned it up a notch, and Sabathia couldn't handle it. Andrew Benintendi was hit by Sabathia's first pitch of the inning, and Steve Pearce moved him over to third with a single. Then, the regular-season RBI king in J.D. Martinez hit a long sacrifice fly to center field to score the first run of the ballgame.
