Yankees Head to All-Star Break With Best Record
SEATTLE (AP) – CC Sabathia allowed a run in seven innings and
joined Tampa Bay's David Price as the only 12-game winners in the
American League, and the New York Yankees roughed up the Seattle
Mariners for an 8-2 victory Sunday and head into the All-Star break
with baseball's best record.
The World Series champions are 56-32 and have a two-game lead
over the Rays in the American League East. New York has won nine of
Sabathia (12-3) won his eighth straight decision and made it
look easy. After consecutive singles from Casey Kotchman and Justin
Smoak in the second inning, Sabathia set down the next 11 before
Michael Saunders' single leading off the sixth.
