Pretty good day for the Yankees lineup, but this win belonged to CC Sabathia. After allowing two runs in the second innings, Sabathia retired 20 of the next 24 batters he faced for a 5-2 win. The only exceptions were a pair of singles, a walk and a rare fielding error by Ramiro Pena. Sabathia pitched through the eighth for the first time since July 1 and end his own modest two-game losing streak. Filling in for Alex Rodriguez, Pena had two RBI, and after getting one hit in his previous six games, Curtis Granderson was 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI triple.
