NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia steadied New York's rocky rotation with eight sharp innings, Alex Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for eighth on the career RBIs list and the Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 Sunday despite leaving 14 men on base in the first six innings.
A-Rod drove in two runs for 1,904 RBIs without hitting the ball out of the infield. He singled on a dribbler down the third base line with the bases loaded in the second, the Yankees' only hit in six plate appearances with three men on. Chris Stewart slid under catcher Gerald Laird's tag on Rodriguez's grounder to short in the seventh.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A person with knowledge of the negotiations says third baseman Brandon Inge has agreed to sign with the Oakland Athletics.
The deal is pending a physical and final paperwork, the person said Sunday, speaking on condition of anonymity because nothing had been finalized and the A's were yet to make a formal announcement.
Inge was released by the Tigers on Thursday after batting .100 (2 for 20) with one home run and two RBIs this season.
He fills a huge void at third, where the A's lost projected starter Scott Sizemore to a season-ending knee injury the first day of spring training. Oakland manager Bob Melvin has tried Josh Donaldson, Eric Sogard and Luke Hughes in the spot so far.
