G31: CC Sabathia shuts down Texas, 3-1

I thought John Thomson pitched great this game, except for his minor meltdown which allowed 3 runs to score. But other than that, he was wonderful. Unfortunately, CC Sabathia was even better, not allowing an earned run.in his 8 innings (as opposed to the 3 that Thomson allowed in his complete game 8 inning loss). That pretty much was the entire game – CC Sabathia shut us down pretty good – not much else you can say about this one.
Raffy watch: He sat out the game, and only came in as a pinch hitter as the final batter of the game. He needs two, and I’m going to the game on Thursday, so I’m hopeful he can do it then. :)
