Home sweet home? Sabathia struggles (again) in Oakland

CC Sabathia

There’s no active American League park in which CC Sabathia has a worse career ERA than the coliseum in Oakland. He’s struggled here in the past, and he struggled again tonight in a 6-4 Yankees loss to the Athletics. Sabathia allowed six runs through six innings, pushing his career ERA to 5.30 in the stadium so close to where he grew up. Things got ugly in a hurry when Coco Crisp led off the bottom of the first with a home run. Derek Norris doubled in another run in the second, then he hit a three-run homer in the fourth. It was a Sabathia wild pitch that brought home the sixth A’s run. The Yankees offense didn’t do much to help until the very end. A singles-filled rally in the eighth scored the first two Yankees runs, and two more scored on a two-out single by Mark Teixeira in the ninth. The whole thing ended with Travis Hafner just missing a game-tying home run. Teixeira, Brett Gardner and Robinson Cano had two hits each. Teixeira had three RBI.
