Tigers Chomp On C.C. And Tribe 12-3

The Detroit Tigers made Cleveland Indians Ace C.C. Sabathia's last start before the MLB All-Star break, one that the pitcher will want to forget as quickly as possible. The Tigers lit up Sabathia for seven runs on ten hits in just four frames easily the southpaw's worst appearance of the year. Gary Sheffield, Placido Polanco, and Carlos Guillen all went deep off Sabathia. Sheffield's blast was number 20 of the year for him and gives him 475 for his career, putting him in a three way tie with MLB Hall of Fame players Stan Musial, and Willie Stargell for 27TH on the all time list. Justin Verlander got the win for Detroit scattering three runs on six hits over seven innings. After the game Sabathia, never one to make excuses said he did not have his best stuff and "I got my butt kicked." He said he would put the loss behind him as both he and Verlander have a chance to start the All-Star Game for the American League. Detroit manager Jim Leyland will be the American League manager.
