CC Sabathia was fired up after getting Josh Reddick out
CC Sabathia gave the New York Yankees exactly what they needed in Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday.
Sabathia went six scoreless against the Houston Astros, allowing just three hits and four walks while striking out five for the win. He got into a tough spot during the top of the sixth with his team up 8-0.
Sabathia allowed a leadoff infield single to Carlos Correa. He got the next two batters out, but Marwin Gonzalez reached on an error, allowing Correa to move to third. That brought Josh Reddick up with runners on the corners and two outs. Sabathia got Reddick to ground out to him and was so fired up he was seen yelling afterwards:

That was a big spot for Sabathia and he escaped. He more than did his job, so he had a right to be fired up afterwards.
Sabathia, backed by 3-run home runs from Aaron Judge and Todd Frazier, allowed the bullpen a good chance to rest ahead of Games 4 and 5.
