Recommendation: "My fastball command was good," Sabathia said. "I just worked off that. I was throwing the ball in pretty good and was getting the corner, so I just tried to stay out there and make my pitches, and it worked out." Sabathia would pitch either a later game in this series or game 1 of the ALCS.
Update: Sabathia was outstanding in game 1 of the ALDS on Sunday, giving up two runs over 8.2 innings and throwing 80 of his 120 pitches for strikes, the Yankees' official site reports.
