Yankees shut out in A’s series opener

CC Sabathia

The Yankees depleted bullpen wasn’t the problem tonight. In fact, it might have been the bright spot. The problem in a 2-0 shutout loss to the A’s was that the Yankees offense went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and got a 2-for-16 combined performance from Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells, Travis Hafner and Ichiro Suzuki. Starter CC Sabathia allowed a home run on his very first pitch but didn’t allow another extra-base hit. It wasn’t until his sixth and final inning — leadoff walk and three singles — that Sabathia allowed another run. It was the first time since Opening Day that Sabathia pitched fewer than seven innings, and with a thin bullpen, it was Adam Warren who came into a two-run game in the seventh. Forced into a larger-than-usual role, Warren delivered three scoreless innings, but the Yankees offense couldn’t capitalize.
