Sabathia, Yankees shut out Tigers 4-0

Unfortunately for the New York Yankees, that saying very much applies to what transpired tonight.

Martinez pitches Cardinals past Pirates 5-1 It took the Cardinals just more than a week into the season to reel off their first winning streak of four games.

"He pitched well, man", the Yanks' Carlos Beltran said.

Detroit rookie Michael Fulmer dominated on Old-Timers' Day at Yankee Stadium, winning his fifth straight start while extending his scoreless streak to 28 1/3 innings to lead the Tigers over NY 4-1 Sunday. He started 2015 as New York's 14th best prospect but after being the Eastern League pitcher of the year, Fulmer began this year as Detroit's top prospect. One, Tigers starter Mike Pelfrey looked out beyond the left-center field fence and saw Anibal Sanchez warming up.

"I thought he was actually pretty good", manager Joe Girardi said. We've been in a long, long stretch.

With Whitey Ford, Rickey Henderson and Bernie Williams on hand for the pregame festivities, the 23-year-old Fulmer excelled. FIVE RBI including this 3-run homer in the @tigers 6-1 win over the Yankees. Gardner hit.500 (17-for-34) with 11 runs, 2 RBI, four walks, and a.553 on-base percentage during the streak.

"His fastball has some sink to it at times, it has some cut to it at times, breaking ball and his changeup".

The Yankees started off playing the field - C. C. Sabathia was the starting pitcher.

Following Tanaka's departure in the seventh, Kinsler stepped back up against Kirby Yates and doubled in two to extend the lead to 6-1. The show closed Saturday night, giving the 61-year-old MI man a chance to see his favorite team in person. Justin Wilson allowed a run on two hits and a walk in the eighth inning, and Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 19th save in the ninth inning. He gave up multiple home runs for the second time this season and lost for the second in three starts after going unbeaten in his first 10 outings.

Sabathia escaped his biggest jam by getting Miguel Cabrera to ground into an inning-ending double with two runners on in the fifth.

Pearce had a two-run double in the first inning, and Logan Forsythe and Brad Miller drove in runs with two-out hits off Lance McCullers (3-2) in the second to give Matt Andriese (5-0) an early four-run lead. More than one-third of the way through the schedule, it is becoming safe to say that the 2016 Yankees' offense is not like what we've been used to. They didn't make a corresponding move, prompting speculation that 1B Ike Davis was on the way. In his last five starts, in fact, he has a 0.26 ERA. On the other end of things, the Detroit Tigers (30-29) came to Yankee Stadium with hopes of getting revenge against the Yankees for a loss no more than a week ago.

In Cincinnati, Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer off Daniel Mengden, who made his major league debut after a speedy rise through the minors.

"You try to do what's best for the whole team", Girardi said. He had been 0-4 with a 4.84 ERA in seven starts at this park, which opened in 2009. White Sox RHP James Shields (2-8), who got hit hard in his first outing after being acquired from San Diego. The Yankees have a 6-27 record when opponents outhit them.

The Tigers beat the Yankees, 4-1, Sunday afternoon in front of a sell-out crowd less than 24 hours after knocking them off, 6-1, on Saturday.
