Sabathia gets 250th win as Yankees roll Tampa

CC Sabathia did not fully appreciate his first visit to Cooperstown, N.Y., representing the Indians in the annual Hall of Fame Game nearly two decades ago. A Minor Leaguer then, he had no spare time to set foot in the museum, settling for a glance from the bus as it rolled toward the highway.

As the 14th pitcher in history to record at least 250 victories and 3,000 strikeouts, Sabathia has all but guaranteed a second opportunity to tour those hallowed grounds. The left-hander succeeded in his fourth attempt at the milestone on Wednesday, hurling six strong innings to help the Yankees complete a series sweep of the Rays with a 12-1 victory at Yankee Stadium.
