C.C. Sabathia improved to 3-0, and Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson each drove in a pair as the Yankees beat the Tigers 6-2 on Sunday afternoon at Yankees Stadium.

Sabathia struck out eight over eight innings, allowing two runs on four hits, helping the Yankees take the rubber game of the three game set.

Granderson hit his eight homer, Derek Jeter added two more hits to raise his average to .396, and Robinson Cano added a pair of base hits. But New York missed several opportunities against Detroit’s Max Scherzer, stranding 15 runners, while going 3 for 13 with RISP.

Scherzer, who dropped to 1-3, threw 119 pitches over 4 2/3 innings, but only allowed three runs on seven hits and seven walks.

Prince Fielder got his third home run, a solo-shot off of Sabathia in the third.

The Yankees (12-9) welcome Baltimore (14-8) to the Bronx on Monday night. Hiroki Kiroda (1-3) gets the start against the O’s Jason Hammel (3-0).

 

Prior to Sunday’s game, it was reported that Freddy Garcia is moving to the bullpen.
