NEW YORK – CC Sabathia, climbing in the last year of his renowned career in the main league, continues to hit the tops.
This time she was a winning mark: 250 of them to be accurate.
Seven weeks after he became the 17th Pitcher in the history of the big leagues to record 3000 fighters, Sabathia added his name on Wednesday to the list of 48 pitchers who had registered 250 career victories.
those guys I adore, and some of those names that are in the history of baseball, "Sabatiya said. "To be part of it, it's a big deal." Sabathia achieved this "big deal" in a smooth way, lasting six comfortable innings, striking seven in a cycle of three strikers, as his New York Yankee blew up the rival of the Tampa Bay Race Division, 1
The victory blocked a series of Yankee series by expanding the leadership of the American League East over Tampa Bay to 3½ games. New York has already taken seven of the nine matches that the teams have played. In fact, when he asked for the first time what he had won, No. 250, he offered the answer: "Just another victory for us, a break for a very good team, we wanted to continue rolling it."
The first Yankee innings did not require much of the historical victory to begin to appear. Still, Sabathia said his mind was to keep him playing in the hands of his striker as quickly as possible so he could do even more damage.
"This is a great team, a great team," he said about the Race Club with which he entered the verbal spies with the latest releases because his team-mates were thrown or hit by the pitch. "I'm still focused on trying to get the team back in the dump to win more tracks, let's have a quick inning, go back to the dump and try to put more pressure on their chairs." The outburst of the first inning was one of the two Yankees they had in the unbeaten victory. They added a seventh week for additional insurance.
Sabathia is now the 14th bowl in the history of baseball with 250 wins and 3000 outs. All, except one of the previous 13, are in the Hall of Fame. Roger Clemens is the only pitcher on this list, which has not yet been voted on.
"This is a sport that dates back to long, long ways, and these are numbers that more than any other sport mean anything, and talks about its greatness and longevity," said Aaron Boone, the current Yankee manager who also played with Sabathia earlier in his career.
In addition, Sabathia became the third left pitcher to hit both brands, Steve Carlton Hall and Randy Johnson. He is also the third African-American Pitcher who has a 250-winning, 3,000-cute career joining Bob Gibson and Canadian-born Ferguson Jenkins.
"It means a lot to be an African-American pitcher that is an inner city and want this game to grow and return to the inner city," said Sabathia. "Having the chance to put these numbers together letting some of these kids know that I'm where they are from, and I love this baseball game, I hope to open some children's doors and open their eyes Start playing the game. "
A great deal of Sabathia's success on Wednesday he depended on his ability to strike with the terrain he was struggling with in recent launches: his fastball cut. his previous exit to Chicago White Sox, when Sabatian said he had problems finding the grip on the field that has recently kept his career alive and thriving. "Sabatija resolved 10 hits and six runs in Yanke's loss. was between the starters, I was sitting with baseball all the time and just playing with my thumb on the ball and trying to figure out. Good, comfortable place to move my thumb to feel so good where I managed to cut the ball, "Sabatiya said.
All this time, he was sitting with baseball combined with what he felt was a strong one
"It's a great honor to be involved in his story," said hunter Gary Sanchez through a translator. Sanchez also stood behind the poster in April when Sabatiya scored a 3,000 loss in her career in Arizona. , I had. The duet enters Cooperstown along with the former Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, a pitcher that Sabathia confessed on Wednesday.
At that time, knee problems, age, and loss of speed forced the long pitcher to reconsider himself. Fineseness and control became the new name of the game of Sabatian.
"If I had not learned this field in 2014, I would probably have left the game," Sabatiya said. "So these two are willing to help me and teach me to teach me a lot."
Sabatian, whose first big league victory came to Detroit on April 13, 2001, has long said that reaching 250 is not very important to him. He preferred to cross the plateau with 3,000 deletions.
"I really meant this," Sabatiya said. "I just want to go out and help well and help this team to win games."
"To win, so many things have to go right. I feel that cleansing is good for you. This is a team that gains more than itself. One of those things that I feel when the team wins or when I win a game is for everyone else. "
The former teammate, Sabathia, whether in Cleveland, Milwaukee or New York, is glorified for Diddy Gregorius explained why.
"Man has been in the game for 19 years and always fights and goes out and gives his heart," said Gregorius. "He is one of the species you want to go there and see the pitch every day, and he is a great leader here in the club and the boys love him. "
