CC Sabathia is pitching like an ace again. Against a dangerous Tigers lineup, the Yankees big lefty allowed two runs on four hits through eight innings this afteroon. The Yankees got a 6-2 win that was Sabathia’s third straight, and he’s pitched into the eighth inning in each of those wins. Sabathia struck out eight before Dave Robertson closed out the win with a scoreless ninth. The Yankees left 15 runners on base, but Curtis Granderson and Andruw Jones each hit home runs, and Alex Rodriguez had a pair of RBIs as the Yankees won their second game in three days against the Detroit. Nick Swisher left the game with tightness in his left hamstring, and his status is uncertain. He was sent for a precautionary MRI.
