Sabathia 9-0 in NL

August 31. CC Sabathia allowed just an infield single and struck out 11 in a complete-game shutout of the Pirates on Sunday. The hit was an infield roller from Andy LaRoche that Sabathia bobbled. LaRoche likely would have beaten it out anyway, but the Brewers are appealing the ruling and asking for the call to be changed to an error. In the very unlikely event that it's overturned, Sabathia would have his first career no-hitter. The big left-hander threw 117 more pitches today. Fortunately, he was able to turn in a quick ninth after entering the inning at 109, preventing him from going over 120 pitches for what would have been the fifth time since the beginning of July. He's 9-0 in 11 starts for the Brewers. Aug. 31 - 5:06 pm et
