Yankees on the brink

The Yankees fell to the brink of elimination in tonight’s 5-4 loss in Detroit. CC Sabathia’s pitch count forced him out of the game after just 5.1 innings, and Rafael Soriano allowed the game-winning home run to Delmon Young in the seventh. Sabathia walked six, his highest total since April of 2010, Girardi turned the bullpen after just one out in the sixth inning. Sabathia left with a 4-2 deficit, but Brett Gardner tied the game with a two-out, two-run double in the seventh before Young’s second homer of the series put the Tigers back in front. Justin Verlander pitched eight innings, striking out 11.
