The Yankees keep hitting home runs at a record pace, and tonight they hit enough of them to give CC Sabathia his first win. Russell Martin went deep twice, including a solo home run as part of a seven-run eighth inning that put the game well on its way to a 15-3 Yankees win. Jorge Posada also homered in the eighth and Alex Rodriguez capped the inning with a grand slam. Even struggling left fielder Brett Gardner went deep. With 35 home runs, the Yankees have broken the franchise record for home runs through 17 games. Sabathia became the first Yankees starter to pitch through the eighth inning this season, finally getting a victory in his fifth start.
