Sabathia Hurt, Tribe Beats Yanks, 4-3

first_imgNEW YORK — After a pregame ceremony to retire Andy Pettitte’s No. 46, it was largely downhill for the New York Yankees.CC Sabathia exited in the third inning with right knee pain, and Francisco Lindor and Carlos Santana homered for the Cleveland Indians in a 4-3 win over the Yankees on Aug. 23.Sabathia struggled with his command from the onset. He allowed four hits and walked a season-high four batters.He struck out Yan Gomes with a 91 mph fastball for the second out of the third. After the pitch, Sabathia stepped off the mound, visibly unhappy, and was visited by athletic trainer Steve Donohue and Manager Joe Girardi, then left the game.“I felt a little bit of pain warming up in the bullpen and when I was in the game,” Sabathia said. “I just couldn’t finish my pitches like I wanted to.”Sabathia underwent an MRI and visited with team physician, Dr. Christopher Ahmad.“It’s a bad knee,” Sabathia said. “It’s tough, especially when you’re trying to help this team win. Having setbacks like this (stinks). It’s hard just not being able to get through it.”Lindor’s eighth-inning blast was his second in as many days and the first home run Dellin Betances (6-3) has allowed to a left-handed batter in his career, a run of 302 batters.Betances walked Giovanny Urshela to start the eighth. After pinch-runner Jose Ramirez was caught stealing, Lindor hit a 3-2 fastball into the right field stands for his seventh home run.“I’m just trying to throw strikes,” Betances said. “At that moment, I’m trying to keep down with it and it was up and he put a good swing on it.”Carlos Beltran had tied the game in the seventh, blooping a double off reliever Bryan Shaw (2-2). The ball landed just fair down the left field line, scoring Stephen Drew, who had walked, and Jacoby Ellsbury, who had doubled.The double was the first extra-base-hit of the game for the Yanks, who only managed two singles against Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer. Bauer pitched 6 1-3 innings, walking a season-high six and striking out seven.Ellsbury led off the third with a single and then stole second. Brett Gardner walked, and after Beltran advanced Ellsbury with a flyout to right field, Gardner stole second, allowing Ellsbury to score when the throw from catcher Gomes skipped away from Lindor.Gardner’s stolen base was the 200th of his career, making him the sixth Yankee to reach the milestone, joining Derek Jeter, Rickey Henderson, Willie Randolph, Hal Chase and Roy White.Abraham Almonte drew a bases-loaded walk against Branden Pinder in the fifth.Prior to the game, the Yankees retired Pettitte’s No. 46 and unveiled a plaque in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium one day after doing the same for Jorge Posada and his No. 20.Cody Allen pitched the final 1 1-3 innings for his 25th save, his second four-out save of the series.(CHARLES O’BRIEN)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
