Sabathia Much Better, But Outdueled by Verlander

The Yankees' streak has reached four.

Unfortunately for them, the number refers to a losing streak that began on Friday night in Fenway Park.

C.C. Sabathia was much better than his previous two starts, but made one enormous mistake with an off-speed pitch to Magglio Ordonez.

It was a mistake that he never had a chance to make up for.

Tigers ace Justin Verlander was as close to perfect as it gets, and ensured that his ERA would officially stop climbing.

The hopes of a Yankee stopper now fall on the shoulders of recent call-up Phil Hughes.

Not quite the burden of pressure New York hoped to throw him into in his first start back in the big leagues.

Hughes will attempt to throw water instead of oil or fuel on the Yankees fire, as he will replace Chien-Ming Wang and his recent mental/physical breakdown.

Someone has to wake the Yankees up from this nightmare, and hopefully that "someone" is Hughes. Stay tuned.
