CC Sabathia is back. Putting to rest any concerns that he’s run out of gas down the stretch, Sabathia delivered a second consecutive gem this afternoon, beating the Twins 8-2 in this series finale. He struck out 10, walked one and allowed no extra-base hits through eight innings. It was his second straight eight-inning start, a significant step forward after disappointing numbers in his previous four outings. Behind him, the Yankees did most of their damage in a six-run third inning when Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson had back-to-back-to-back RBI hits. Chris Dickerson added a two-run homer in the sixth to put the game further out of reach. Brett Gardner made his first appearance since April, entering as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning.
