Wild CC helps Tigers take 2-1 lead in ALDS

Sabathia game playoff high with six runs and Derek Jeter with two runners attacked during the last outing in a loss of 4.5 Yankees at Detroit Tigers on Monday night that blew a hole in New York 2-1 in the best of five AL division series.

"I put us in a bad neighborhood," said Sabathia bleak. "The next time you get the ball, I'll try to go out and try to help us win."

That can not be until next year.

AL East champions are relying on the unsteady AJ Burnett in Game 4 at Comerica Park on Tuesday night. Burnett was 11-11 with an ERA of 5.15 in the regular season start was pushed out of the playoffs because Sabathia in Game 1 was interrupted by rain.

"I feel good about what AJ will do for us," manager Joe Girardi said.

Sabathia was given an early 2-0 lead, but fell short in a battle of aces, part 2.

New York scored two runs in the first off Justin Verlander close the queue before a strong MVP candidate for the next round five with a 100 mph fastball and knee-buckling breaking pitch.

"Verlander has a small number," said Alex Rodriguez. "It was always a handful."

Yankees mounted a rally for the second straight game against Jose Valverde in about the ninth inning and fell short. On Sunday, Robinson Cano grounded with runners on first and second to close setbacks.

This time Jeter attacked by two, and the captain left the course shaking his head.

"I feel good about Jeter when he was there in that situation because he has done so many times," Girardi said.

The five-time World Series champion, becoming the first player to reach 3,000 hits Yankees in July, has made a career of coming through the clutch, but can not offer the last chance.

"If I do not swing, will strike anyway," Jeter said.

A Rodriguez hit for his part, and many of his teammates are not suitable for Verlander for most of the game.

A-Rod out RBI shot to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead in the first, but ended 0 to 2, with two races and dropped to 0 for 10 in the series. MVP three times, overshadowed by a knee injury and thumb, pressing almost better than .200 the last three months of the regular season.

"My confidence is always there," says Rodriguez. "I'm ready to go."

Girardi said he was not trying to change their lineup, it seems likely that he will do what his predecessor, Joe Torre, against Detroit in Game 4 of the AIDS 2006, when the star falls Tower fell to eighth place in chronological order.

Rodriguez gave the green light to swing a 3-0 pitch to Verlander violates the eighth and beat the weak in the chair behind him. A-Rod turned and answered in the next release and waste of a field that took off at 101 mph before it prudent to take a high tone, and to attract walk-in.

Mark Teixeira has also struggled. He was 0 for 4 on Monday and 11.1 in the series.

Free pass for what was intended Sabathia.

The left-hander had no loss - Rafael Soriano after giving a young man who broke the tie in the seventh Delmon Homer - but as a $ 161 million for the fight to get the ball over the plate.

It lasted from 1 to 3 innings and provided six runs - one intentional - allowing seven hits and four runs. He had three strikeouts and threw a wild pitch, with more land or the way targeting.

"I really think he has done a lot of good pitches tonight and I think the area is a small," Girardi said. "No disrespect to anyone, but that's what I thought."

Sabathia, however, refused to make excuses about how the umpire Gerry Davis called the game.

"I've never had one to see who was calling balls and strikes," said Sabathia. "It's me get people out."

The last time Sabathia, who can opt out of his contract after this season, was lost in the playoffs is October 4, 2007, when he pitched for the Yankees against the Cleveland Indians.

Control Sabathia is so out of control that even struggled to connect with catcher Russell Martin on one of the only deliberate pitch.

"I do not take the field when I can," he said.

The Yankees plan to launch their games and an expert in Game 4, if necessary, but the rain changed the initial starting rotation after 1 ½.

Plan B put Burnett on the mound and not a root of New York is very excited about it.

Burnett signed a five-year contract for $ 82500000 Yankees during the successful season in which he spent $ 423.5 million to add two years ago, Sabathia and Teixeira.

The law has not fulfilled its part of the deal, but he has the opportunity to quickly pay dividends if you can help prevent the Yankees eliminated the Motor City.

"I'm not going out and trying to prove anything," says Burnett. "I'm going out and trying to win a game."
