In a replay of the last game before the all-star break, CC Sabathia and James Shields locked in a pitchers’ duel tonight. This time it was Shields who got away with the one-run win, 2-1, in the Yankees series finale at Tropicana Field. Sabathia was very good — two runs on five hits through eight innings — but a two-out walk came back to hurt him. Shields was just as good and didn’t allow a run until Robinson Cano’s two-out RBI double in the eighth. The Yankees went 4-4 on this first road trip after the break.
