Another Sabathia dud dooms Yankees

CC Sabathia, Logan Forsythe

The CC Sabathia tailspin continued Friday night, and it continued against a lineup that’s not particularly good even for the National League West. Sabathia yet again failed to pitch through the sixth inning, and the Yankees lost 7-2 in their series opener against the Padres. Sabathia allowed five of those San Diego runs, and he did so while giving up 11 hits including his 24th home run of the year. Sabathia has not pitched through the sixth inning in any of his past four starts, but he’s allowed a total of 37 hits in those outings. His ERA is up to 4.78, the highest in the rotation and the second highest on the current staff. Only Joba Chamberlain, who also allowed a run tonight, has a higher season ERA. Even with Curtis Granderson, the Yankees couldn’t bail out Sabathia. They scored two runs to momentarily tie the game in the second, but they went quietly the rest of the way, never getting another runner into scoring position.
