MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- CC Sabathia won his 200th career game to stretch his winning streak over Minnesota to nearly six years, and Robinson Cano hit a tying two-run double to spark the New York Yankees in a 3-2 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night.
Cano fueled the three-run sixth against Twins starter PJ Walters (2-5), who was pitching for his job. Trevor Plouffe homered against Sabathia (9-6), but the burly right-hander finished seven innings with seven hits and three walks while striking out nine.
Mariano Rivera notched his 28th save in 29 tries with a scoreless ninth.
Sabathia is 11-0 with a 2.01 ERA in his last 12 starts against the Twins with a 2.01 ERA.
