It was a milestone day for the New York Yankees and their ace CC Sabathia, as the ace recorded his 200th career win, a 3-2 battle over the Minnesota Twins.

Sabathia gave up two runs over seven strong innings to secure his eighth victory of the season, striking out nine. CC surrendered an RBI double in the third to Joe Mauer and a Trevor Plouffe solo home run in the fifth, finding himself in a 2-0 hole heading to the top of the sixth.

That deficit didn’t last long, however, as the Yankee bats finally came to life against the soft throwing P.J. Walters. After Brett Gardner opened the sixth with a walk and Ichiro belted a double off the wall, red hot slugger Robinson Cano drove them both home with a double of his own. Cano later scored on a Lyle Overbay sacrifice fly, putting the Yankees ahead for good, 3-2.

David Robertson pitched a one, two three eighth inning in relief and Mariano Rivera slammed the door for his 28th save of the season.
