    CC Sabathia Not So Hot In 2nd Spring Start For New York Yankees


    The Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees 7-4 on Wednesday roughing up Yankees ace CC Sabathia in the process.  Sabathia didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning – giving up 5 runs on 6 hits.  Gary Sheffield hit a 2-run home run off of Sabathia in the Tigers 5-run 2nd inning.  Sheffield hit 2 home runs against his former team in the game.

    As for Yankees’ bats, Mark Teixeira had an RBI-single in the 1st inning of Tigers starter Justin Verlander.  The Yankees coaxed Verlander into 3 consecutive walks in the 2nd inning which enabled the Yankees to score on a Posada walk, a Kevin Cash single and a Nick Swisher sacrifice fly.

    The Yankees are now 5-7-1 this spring, while the Tigers are 4-8.
