Analysis: Manager Joe Girardi said Friday "that's about fair to say" Sabathia's season is over. The six-time All-Star left-hander has been out with a degenerative cartilage problem in his right knee. After making his second rehab start Wednesday, Sabathia experienced swelling the next morning.

Analysis: Sabathia was tagged for six runs over six innings, with all the scoring coming in the first two.
