That's "Sir Sidney" to you

Sir Sidney Ponson gave the Yankees six shutout innings after they got destroyed earlier this afternoon.

He loaded the bases twice (once with no outs) and obviously worked out of trouble. His control was an issue (four walks) but he also struck out four batters and allowed five hits.

Say what you want about Ponson, but it was a lot of fun watching him pump his fist and smiling after getting a sacrifice bunt down. He obviously won't always turn in starts like these, but if he can deliver quality starts, this could be a huge find for the team.
