OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — CC Sabathia came off the disabled list to pitch six innings and become the eighth player in the modern era to win 100 games or more with two teams, and the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 8-3 on Friday night.
Carlos Beltran doubled three times and drove in three runs, Jacoby Ellsbury added two RBIs while Ronald Torreyes had a two-run triple during a five-run fourth inning to help the Yankees to their second straight win in this series after getting swept by the A’s in April.
Sabathia (3-2) was just as sharp as he was in his previous start before going on the disabled list with a groin injury earlier this month. The big left-hander allowed one run, three hits, walked one and had a season-high eight strikeouts for his first victory there since 2012.
