Mar 12 – Downer Day: Both Yanks and Team USA Fall

baseball6(Tampa, FL) – Wednesday was not a great day.  CC Sabathia got bounced around in his second start falling to Detroit by a score of 7-4.  And in the WBC, Team USA lost its first game of the tourney to Venezuela by a 5-3 score but will advance to the next round.

CC was touched for 5 runs and 6 hits in just 1 2/3 innings, including a homer by Gary Sheffield.  Alfredo Aceves also gave up two solo dingers to round out the Tiger scoring.  Mark Teixeira and Johnny Damon had 2 hits apiece for the Yanks who only mustered up 7 for the game.  The Yanks get an off day today.

Derek Jeter went 2-4 with a walk and a run scored in the WBC game as the DH.     Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning but Team USA couldn’t finish the comeback in the ninth.
