CC within striking distance of 20 wins

072710sabathia.jpgWith tonight’s victory, CC Sabathia improved to 15-5, which ties him with Tampa Bay’s David Price for the American League lead in victories. There’s still enough season left that Sabathia could make a serious run at his first career 20-win season, although don’t expect that to be fueling his drive as the second half runs its course.

“That’s something that I can’t think about. I just want to go out and keep having good starts and helping this team win,” Sabathia said. “I try to stay away from personal goals, to be honest. I think that everybody who’s asked me that the last couple of years, I’d rather win a World Series than win 20 games or win a Cy Young.”
Sabathia said he felt strong enough to finish what he started, but after giving up a couple of hits there in the ninth inning, he knew Joe Girardi would be mulling going to the bullpen. Dave Robertson got the job done, but not without giving up a two-run double to Willie Bloomquist that cut the lead to 4-3.
“I felt good. They got a couple of hits there in the ninth,” Sabathia said. “That’s Joe’s job to judge when I’m done. I think he did a good job.”
