Ace CC Sabathia was absolutely electric today. In maybe his most dominant start as Yankee, Sabathia tied a career-high with 13 Ks over 7.2 innings as the Yanks won, 5-0. Sabathia has now eight of his last nine starts and leads baseball with 11 victories. Speaking of Major League leads, Mark Teixeira clubbed his 25th homer, tops in baseball. Not only did Teixeira claim the home run lead from Jose Bautista, but today’s home run was his 300th career blast.
