NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia tied his career high with 13 strikeouts and Mark Teixeira hit his 300th homer to help the New York Yankees finish off June with a season-best five-game winning streak by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 Thursday
Sabathia (11-4) won for the eighth time in nine starts and became the first major leaguer to reach 11 victories. Detroit ace Justin Verlander was going for his 11th on Thursday afternoon against the New York Mets.
In 7 2-3 innings, Sabathia gave up six hits and two walks. Every batter he fanned came on a swinging third strike.
When Sabathia left after throwing 118 pitches, he got a roar from the fans who saw yet another daytime win. The Yankees are 23-4 in the afternoon.
