The New York Yankees enjoyed a milestone win for CC Sabathia and a sweep over their closest pursuer in the American League East on Wednesday.

Now the focus is on a four-game series against the AL West-leading Houston Astros, who are coming off a rare rough patch but swept the Yankees in April.

The Yankees put their five-game winning streak on the line Thursday night when they host the Astros in the opener of a four-game series.
