DETROIT — CC Sabathia did his part to help the Yankees close a second straight series with a sweep-avoiding win. Sabathia pitched seven scoreless innings and Jayson Nix homered off Justin Verlander in a three-run second. "You always want to avoid a sweep and finish a series well," Sabathia said. "It felt good to get a win." New York (2-4) needed to beat the Tigers to avoid dropping to its worst six-game record since starting the 1989 season 1-7.
