CC Sabathia Better Than Outcome Indicates In Yankees’ Loss

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — CC Sabathia kept the ball on the ground. Alex Rodriguez hit one high in the air.

Just like old times — except for the final score.

Rodriguez hit his first home run since serving a yearlong drug suspension, but the Toronto Blue Jays beat Sabathia and the New York Yankees 6-3 Thursday night in the first major league win for eccentric rookie Daniel Norris.

Edwin Encarnacion homered and the Blue Jays got RBI singles from Jose Reyes and Kevin Pillar in a four-run second inning against Sabathia.

“Got away from the game plan. I have to control both sides of the plate,” Sabathia said. “I threw the ball pretty good. I just got away from going in to keep them off of the soft stuff.”

Toronto took two of three in the season-opening series, boosting its record at Yankee Stadium to 7-30 since May 24, 2011.
