CC Sabathia gets ejected on goal pitch, loses bonus

NY opened an 11-0 lead and Sabathia hit Sucre on his first pitch in the bottom half, causing Capapazza to eject the pitcher and Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia was ejected for hitting Jesus Sucre on a leg in retaliation for Tampa Bay reliever Andrew Kittredge throwing an inside pitch at Austin Romine, possibly costing the left-hander a $500,000 bonus based on innings. Sabathia needed to complete seven innings Thursday to earn a $500,000 contract bonus by reaching 155 innings this season.

Standing up for your teammates is always the right thing to do.

It was just after Kittredge's ball went whizzing past Romine when Sabathia emerged from the Yankees' dugout, and yelled in the direction of his opposing pitcher.

As he was walking off the mound following the ejection, Sabathia turned towards the Rays dugout and shouted: "That was for you, (expletive)".

Bill Cosby's New Mug Shot After Being Transferred to Maximum Security Prison
Bill Cosby spent his first night behind bars at a new, state-of-the-art, maximum security prison in suburban Philadelphia. It features a separate housing unit for geriatric inmates and also offers the counseling required by Cosby's sentence.

The Rays' catcher, Sucre, led off the bottom of the sixth, and 2009 World Series champion Sabathia drilled him squarely in the thigh with the first pitch.

NY went on to score four runs in the inning, including home runs by Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton.

The 1997 Mariners hold the record with 264 homers in a season, but Stanton said the Yankees head to Boston more concerned with securing home field advantage over the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card Game.

They need one win - or one loss by the Athletics - to do so.
