CC Sabathia curses out 'weak' Red Sox for bunting strategy

CC Sabathia curses out 'weak' Red Sox for bunting strategy

The Sox bunted when the teams met at Fenway Park on August 19, and Boston infielder Eduardo Nunez did it again Thursday at Yankee Stadium.

In the first inning, Red Sox second baseman Eduardo Nunez reached base by laying down a bunt and forcing an errant throw to first from Sabathia. His command didn't join him for the first three batters of the frame, where Betances walked one batter and hit the other two to load the bases.

Sabathia's latest win occurred after an ugly three-game sweep against the Cleveland Indians and prevented the Yankees from falling a season-high 6 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in the AL East. It just so happens they were following the days we haven't won before the night before but I'm not trying to put any extra pressure on going out and try to do too much. "Just shows what they've got over there".

Asked what set him off, Sabathia said: "I don't give a [expletive] about their reaction. I just feel like sometimes they don't want to", Sabathia said, per the New York Daily News. I'm out there early every day.

Sabathia did the fake-tough-guy routine: He said any Boston player could meet him in center field Friday if they had a problem with what he said. He told reporters that Nunez - a former teammate - apologized before his second at-bat, but Nunez's take on the situation told a different story. "I don't care if he's mad or not".

Not only has Sabathia stepped up when the Yankees are facing their biggest rivals, but also as a stopper.

"One hundred percent, yes", Nunez said. People know he was on the DL for the knee.

"I'm an old man so they should go out and want to kick my butt", Sabathia said.

Games between the Yankees and Red Sox are notoriously long, and replay challenges didn't help change that narrative on Thursday. I have to try bunting. "Bunting is part of the game", Rice said in the NESN studio.

Sabathia, who came into the game 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA against the Red Sox this season, battled control issues but allowed only one run and four hits. Fister is coming off two of his best two starts for the Red Sox, and in his past five outings, he is 3-2 with a 3.41 ERA.

"It gets you fired up", said Sabathia.
