CC Sabathia appeared to bark some not quite family-friendly phrases at Astros right fielder Josh Reddick after getting him to ground out to end the sixth inning. When asked about it after the game, the Yankees lefty said, laughing: "That was just me being me, man."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier invoked two animal comparisons in his description of what it's like to face CC Sabathia. "He's a bulldog," Frazier said. "It's one of those things. Look at the size of him. He looks like a bear out there just on the mound, just ready to pounce on somebody. He has that going for him. And he hits his spots."

When asked about the energy Garden State native Todd Frazier has brought to the Bronx, Yankees first baseman Greg Bird laughed. "Yeah, he's funny. He's unique, for sure. Super New Jersey, I guess," said Bird, who was born in Memphis. "He's great, on both sides of the ball. And, you know, he can put the ball in the seats and that's huge."
