Sabathia can't solve Comerica

Roster Report · Notes, Quotes · Sabathia can't solve Comerica

Most players consider Comerica Park to be a pitcher's haven. CC Sabathia is not one of them.

The Yankees left-hander continued to struggle in Detroit, taking his fifth loss in his last six starts in the Motor City on Tuesday as New York fell 4-2 to the Tigers.

Sabathia allowed four runs on 10 hits and three walks, matching his season high with 13 baserunners. Sabathia's night started with consecutive doubles by Austin Jackson and Scott Sizemore, helping the slumping Tigers jump out to a 2-0 lead they would never relinquish.

"I don't know if it's anything with the park, it's just one of those things," Sabathia said. "It was just one of those nights."

Sabathia allowed two more runs in the fifth, though he did his best to limit the damage during the rest of his seven-inning outing. In his last six starts at Comerica Park, Sabathia is now 1-5 with a 5.54 ERA.

"I felt pretty good in the bullpen, but the very first pitch I threw cut back over the plate," Sabathia said. "I felt like maybe I wasn't getting on top of the ball like I normally do."
