That was the first ejection in nine years for Sabathia. He gave up back-to-back solo homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the top of the first inning but was otherwise sharp in the Yankees’ eventual 6-2 victory. That’s now six wins in a row for the Yanks, who remain first place in the AL East standings.
WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.
He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.
Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.
The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.
Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
