MINNEAPOLIS -- CC Sabathia had to work hard for this milestone, just like most of his victories in this challenging season for the New York Yankees. Asics Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Outlet . To the Minnesota Twins, well, he was the same overpowering, nearly unbeatable pitcher. 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 Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night. The significance of Sabathias accomplishment at age 32 was lost, at least publicly, on the burly left-hander. "Its hard not to be aware of it, but I dont know if it means anything right now," Sabathia said. "Ill be ready in five days to go again and just try to get No. 201." 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 he finished seven innings with seven hits and three walks while striking out nine. The Yankees are missing almost all of their stars, and Sabathias fastball isnt in the upper 90s anymore. The big man can still throw, though. "I think its still a work in progress. I think youre always trying to get better and trying to reinvent yourself," Sabathia said. "Ive still got some work to do, but hopefully I can just keep getting better." Sabathia is 11-0 with a 2.01 ERA in his last 12 starts against the Twins. He threw a season-high 121 pitches. "He did really grind this one out," manager Joe Girardi said. "Its just his will. He never gets down on himself. He always believes that he can make the pitch, and eventually he does it." The Twins were on their way to beating Sabathia for the first time since July 29, 2007, the year he won the AL Cy Young award. Brian Dozier drew a leadoff walk in the third and scored on Joe Mauers double, his first extra-base hit in nine games. Shortstop Luis Cruz, signed before the game as a replacement for Jayson Nix -- the latest Yankee to hit the disabled list -- was charged with an error for throwing over first baseman Lyle Overbays head to give the Twins runners at the corners with no outs. But Sabathia bore down after that, striking out Justin Morneau, retiring Plouffe on a fly out and striking out Oswaldo Arcia to finish the inning. With two outs in the fifth, Plouffes drive escaped the outstretched glove of centre fielder Brett Gardner and bounced high off the top of the wall onto the black batter-eye backing behind it for a 2-0 lead. That was all the Twins could get, though. "With a guy like CC you have to score those runs, especially against the Yankees," Plouffe said. Mariano Rivera pitched a scoreless ninth to notch his 28th save in 29 tries in his farewell season. Cano has had at least two hits in each of the first six games of this road trip, batting 14 for 24 with 10 RBIs and four home runs. His streak of going deep ended at three straight games, but the four-time All-Star second baseman didnt stop lifting this lagging, injury-ravaged lineup once again. Aaron Hicks made a fully extended catch of Canos line drive to centre field in the eighth inning, the only time the Twins got him out on the night. After giving the Twins solid performances in his first four starts, Walters fell out of whack, lasting a total of nine innings over his previous three turns while allowing 16 hits, 16 runs and nine walks. The right-hander breezed twice through the batting order, but the leadoff walk in the sixth to Gardner was foreboding. Ichiro Suzuki followed with a double, and then came Canos crushing line drive down the right-field line off a 1-2 slider that caught too much of the plate. "I just hung the breaking ball. Its a pitch I shouldve bounced," Walters said. With first base open, the Twins couldve intentionally walked Cano. He paused when asked why he thinks teams have been pitching to him despite the tear hes on. "The only way you can look at it is its a team thats not in the race. ... Theyre taking their chances: All right, lets pitch to him," Cano said. Caleb Thielbar bailed the Twins out, limiting the damage to Overbays go-ahead sacrifice fly after inheriting a no-out, runners-at-the-corners situation. But the lead was lost. Walters allowed four hits and three walks while striking out three. NOTES: Twins LF Josh Willingham had arthroscopic surgery in the morning to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. ... Yankees RH Hiroki Kuroda, out of the rotation temporarily because of a left hip flexor problem, will see the team doctor on Friday. Girardi declined to speculate on when Kuroda, who has been the teams best starter, will take his next turn. ... The Yankees will send RH David Phelps (5-5, 4.95 ERA to the mound in search of the sweep in the finale on Thursday afternoon. Rookie RH Kyle Gibson (1-0, 3.00) will make his second start for the Twins after winning his major league debut last weekend with six strong innings.

Halak did not get the start in the Washington Capitals Tuesday night game against the St. . Sources tell TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun the international tournament will likely return in September 2016 rather than 2015.Harrison, NJ ( - Sporting Kansas Citys MLS Cup defense will begin on Thursday when the club travels to Red Bull Arena to face Red Bull New York in the Eastern Conference play-in game. Kansas City finished the 2013 regular season in second place, one point back of the MLS Supporters Shield-winning Red Bulls. Sporting went on to win MLS Cup in the playoffs, but the 2014 campaign has been a significant deviation from last seasons success. Once in the discussion for the top seed in the East, a poor second half to the season yielded an abysmal 3-8-1 record after the All-Star Game, dropping Sporting to fifth place in the table. Kansas City concluded its regular season on Sunday with a disappointing 2-0 home loss to the Red Bulls. SKC head coach Peter Vermes cited the teams exhaustion as one of the main factors for the demise. To me, this isnt a bad loss from the point of view that the guys fought and tried, theyre just tired, Vermes said of the loss to RBNY. One is you make technical or tactical errors and the other is you make psychological errors when youre tired, and the guys are. There was really nothing we could do. Im not sure if Im not being clear, but when you have as many guys out as we do, at some point you have to understand you cant replace those guys. We have a salary cap. So were asking guys that are not regulars, not ready yet, to be 34-game times 90-type players. And theyre having to play like that on a regular basis. And not just through one competition, its been multiple. Ive painted those examples before, but I dont walk around with the guys and paint excuses to them based on that. We have to get healthy and I think that if our guys are recovered and healthy, we can give any teamm in this league a good game. Asics Gel Lyte iii Baratas. The Red Bulls have also had to contend with CONCACAF Champions League fixtures this season, but head coach Mike Petke seems to have managed the extra fixtures more appropriately. New York essentially enters the postseason at full fitness, a testament to Petkes rotation policy. The Red Bulls rested captain Thierry Henry for Sundays meeting with Sporting, but the team rallied and earned a result in what Petke identified as one of the most enjoyable matches hes witnessed since assuming the managerial duties of his former club. This was one of the more enjoyable games since Ive been a coach, because you put a game plan out and you watch it executed, its a fun thing, Petke said after the match. Thats not always the case, but these guys were disciplined, they did exactly what we wanted to do and Im happy for them. We didnt celebrate like we won anything. Its just a good thing now we can go home and have a home game. Bradley Wright-Phillips stole the headlines by notching both goals on the night to finish with 27 goals on the campaign, tying Chris Wondolowski and Roy Lassiter for the single-season scoring record. But according to goalkeeper Luis Robles, the shutting out SKC striker Dom Dwyer was the biggest contributing factor to helping the Red Bulls march on to three points on Sunday. The thing that stuck out was defensively we limited Kansas Citys chances, said Robles, who only had to make two saves en route to recording his sixth clean sheet of the year. Realistically, they only had the one in the beginning with Dwyer and after that we won every second ball, were chasing balls down and it was a performance that we can really be proud of. ' ' '
