Sabathia sets the tone for Royals series

The big Yankees’ ace CC Sabathia put on a show in the series opener with the Royals last night, as he fell just one out shy of completing the game, a 4-3 victory.

Best of All: With a reformed swing, Curtis Granderson notched two hits, including a double, against lefty starter Bruce Chen. It’s only one game, but there’s good reason to believe last night’s game was the start of a turnaround to his season.

Nick Swisher collected three hits and inched closer to the .300 mark. Austin Kearns hit his first homer as a Yankee in the fourth inning.

Worst of All: Mark Teixeira went 0-for-4 in his first game back after the birth of his child. Let’s hope he can return to home run-hitting form soon.

Coming Up: The second game of four is tonight at 8:10 p.m.
