Mussina lost his third blowout in a row, 16-0, to the Tigers in Detroit. In his last three starts, in which he has pitched 9 2/3 innings, Mussina (8-10) has given up 19 earned runs, 25 hits and five walks. Not surprisingly, New York has lost all three. With the Yanks in a scramble for the AL wild card, manager Joe Torre has to decide whether he wants to keep handing the ball to the 38-year-old Mussina. He was non-committal last night.
