CC Sabathia on Avisail Garcia incident: It was a ‘misunderstanding’

CC Sabathia

CC Sabathia and Avisail Garcia got into it during the New York Yankees’ 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday. After the game, Sabathia said it was all a “misunderstanding.”

Sabathia got Garcia to strike out looking with a runner on second to end the top of the sixth. Garcia seemed to be upset with the call as the breaking ball looked outside.

Garcia seemed surprised that Sabathia was upset with him and was questioning the Yankees pitcher. Sabathia had to be held back, while players spilled onto the field from the dugouts.

After the game, Sabathia dismissed the incident.

If anything, this is just a reminder of how quick of a trigger Sabathia can have while he’s pitching. He’s intense and in the moment, so he’s never hesitating to stand up to a hitter. Plus, he has history with the Rays.

Rays shortstop Willy Adames thinks Sabathia just happens to have a dominating attitude.

Sabathia took a no-decision in the outing. His Yankees came back with six runs in the eighth to win 8-3.
