Sabathia records 3,000th strikeout but Yanks lose in Arizona

CC Sabathia made history Tuesday night at Chase Field with his 3,000th career strikeout, but Zack Greinke was the one who walked away with the win.

The D-backs ace held the Yankees to just one run over 7 2/3 innings as Arizona snapped its two-game losing streak with a 3-1 win.

Maybe even more importantly for the D-backs, Greinke (5-1) gave the bullpen a desperately needed rest after it was relied on to throw 10 2/3 innings in the team’s previous game — a 6-5 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon.
