Near Perfecto Stats: Yanks tie team K record

Here are some stats for you from CC Sabathia and the Yankees:

* The 18-team strikeouts tied a franchise record for most strikeouts in a nine-inning game. Ron Guidry struck out 18 against California on June 17, 1978

* Sabathia's 15 wins are the most in baseball. Sabathia, according to Elias, is the first Yankee pitcher to be the first in the majors to 15 wins in two different seasons. 2009 was the other.

* Sabathia's 14 strikouts were a career-high. They were the most strikeouts by a Yankee lefty since David Wells K'd 16 A's on July 30, 1997.

* The 18-strikeout, one-hitter by the Yankees makes the Yankees the second team to have thrown an 18-plus K one-hitter since 1920. Kerry Wood did it against the Astros when he struck out 20 in 1998.
