CC Sabathia moved to within two strikeouts of 2,000 for his career on Sunday, picking up his 19th win while striking out 10 over 7.1 innings in the 9-3 victory. He worked in and out of trouble early, before hitting his stride after the fourth inning. Derek Jeter hit a three-run homer in the third (his fifth of the season), Alex Rodriguez added a solo shot in the sixth (his 15th of the year) and Nick Swisher hit the longest Yankee home run of the day with his two-run shot in the eighth (his 22nd). Jeter also had a two-run single in the eighth, tying his career high with five RBI. Rookie Jesus Montero had his first multi-hit game after picking up his first career hit on Saturday. With Boston losing 9-0 to Texas, the Yanks are in line to extend their lead in the division to 1 1/2 games.
