Due to a death in the family (RIP aunt Millie) I’m using the Yahoo feed. I’ll pick it back up on Friday against the Maddons.

CC Sabathia (notes) allowed a run in seven innings and joined Tampa Bay’s David Price (notes) as the only 12-game winners in the American League, and the New York Yankees roughed up the Seattle Mariners for an 8-2 victory Sunday and head into the All-Star break with baseball’s best record.

The World Series champions are 56-32 and have a two-game lead over the Rays in the American League East. New York has won nine of 11.
