CC Sabathia outpitched David Price for the first time in six career matchups between the All-Star lefties, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson homered and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 Thursday night.

The Yankees overcame a pair of early errors by third baseman Eduardo Nunez to take the series and send Tampa Bay to its fourth loss in five games.

Sabathia (5-0) struck out 10, punctuating his outing by fanning B.J. Upton with two runners on base to end the seventh inning. The burly pitcher twirled on the mound and violently punched the air, catcher Chris Stewart pumped his fist and Upton pounded his bat in the ground after swinging over a slider.
