Sabathia makes Yankee historyBy
By holding the Mariners scoreless for six innings before the rains came this afternoon, Yankee ace CC Sabathia quietly set a franchise record. With his 16th consecutive start of at least six innings and no more than three earned runs, CC broke a tie with Ron Guidry for the longest such streak in franchise history.
Gator’s streak came during his 1978 Cy Young Award winning season, and as Sabathia piles up the traditional counting stats, his Cy candidacy will grow stronger. I’m not sure I’d give it to him, but just being in the discussion is enough to make me happy.
