Indians pitcher C.C. Sabathia was robbed at gunpoint early yesterday morning at a Cleveland hotel by a group of men who stole his necklace, earrings and wallet, club officials said. Neal Huntington, the Indians' assistant general manager, said Sabathia and a cousin went to the Marriott Hotel with a group of people they had just met at a nightclub. As Sabathia, 21, and his cousin were getting ready to leave, two or three men pulled guns, Huntington said. A police spokeswoman said that a report had not been filed and that details of the case were sketchy.

C.C. Sabathia beat Josh Beckett at last - albeit a few weeks later than he hoped. Sabathia won the AL Cy Young Award yesterday, topping Boston's ace and two other worthy contenders by a comfortable margin to become the first Cleveland Indians pitcher in 35 years to earn the honor. Sabathia received 19 of 28 first-place votes and finished with 119 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Beckett, who outpitched Sabathia twice in the playoffs, was second with eight first-place votes and 86 points.

NEW YORK - Nothing burnishes a major-league ballplayer's resume like postseason success. Fair or not, it's often what defines careers because it illustrates an athlete's ability to rise when the stakes are highest. The Yankees' CC Sabathia and Alex Rodriguez began the postseason with some burnishing to do, and they will be key factors in whether New York can get past the Los Angeles Angels in the American League Championship Series, which is scheduled to begin here tonight. Their abilities are beyond question: Sabathia has been among the game's top lefthanders since he went 17-5 his rookie season with Cleveland in 2001.

CLEVELAND - This is the way the Indians imagined it. One win away from a chance to win the World Series for the first time since 1948. With Jacobs Field rocking. And their horse, C.C. Sabathia, on the mound. There's only one nagging detail in this dream scenario as the Tribe gets ready for Game 5 of the American League Championship Series tonight (Fox, 8:21), one loose end left untied. And that's the curious fact that their big lefthander just hasn't been very good so far in the postseason.

Casey Blake had a grand slam and six RBI and C.C. Sabathia struck out 11 in his first victory, leading the visiting Cleveland Indians to a 15-1 rout of the Kansas City Royals last night. Blake, the No. 9 hitter, was 4-for-4 with a single and a grand slam and two RBI doubles in the Indians' 17-hit attack. David Dellucci and Jhonny Peralta also homered and Franklin Gutierrez had a three-run double for Cleveland, which came in with the 10th-worst run total and lowest slugging percentage in the league.

BOSTON - The American League Championship Series features two tremendous pitching staffs, but only one of them showed up last night. The Boston Red Sox rolled to a 10-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 on the strength of yet another impressive postseason start by Josh Beckett. The 27-year-old righthander limited the Indians to two runs and four hits over six innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out seven. As good as Beckett was, he wasn't nearly as effective as he had been in his two previous postseason starts.

Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura yesterday signed a bill that would pay for a new $330 million ballpark for the Twins. The open-air, natural-grass stadium would be built in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area in time for the 2006 season. It would replace the 20-year-old Metrodome, which is in downtown Minneapolis. The Twins would contribute $120 million up front and $10 million annually for rent as part of a 30-year lease to use the ballpark. The decision may affect commissioner Bud Selig's goal to contract two teams before the 2003 season, a plan that was thwarted by lawsuits in the off-season.

Joe Torre's brother could undergo a kidney transplant in the next couple of months after tests determined two of his children are a match for the procedure.

"He's excited," Joe Torre said yesterday. "It could be a month, it could be 2 months. There are other tests that have to be taken, not as far as matchups, for whoever the donor is going to be, physicalwise.

While CC Sabathia was on the Yankee Stadium mound last night, several of his teammates battled the cold with flaps pulled down over their ears. They breathed warmth into their hands and tried to shake the stiffness from their legs by hopping up and down between pitches. The way the 6-foot-7 lefthander dominated the Los Angeles Angels in the first game of the best-of-seven American League Championship Series, that was about the extent of their activity on defense. The Yankees took a step toward returning to the World Series for the first time since 2003 with a 4-1 win over the Angels, who have been one of their main tormentors for nearly a decade.

NEW YORK - Raul Ibanez strapped the goggles to his face and shook a bottle of champagne in the middle of the Yankees clubhouse. A teammate doused him in bubbly and it soaked his bald head and pinstriped pants. "That's all you can ask for," Ibanez said. Ten feet away, Alex Rodriguez danced. He too held a bottle and savored the moment he was prevented from creating. The Yankees defeated Baltimore, 3-1, Friday in the fifth game of an epic American League division series with their $275 million man benched and Ibanez, signed one day after spring training began, so pivotal.

New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia, is relieved to be making his first start since June 24 against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday. He says being on the disabled list for the first time since 2006, when he was with Cleveland, was a little "embarrassing. " Not because he was out with a groin strain, or because the Yanks went 11-6 without him and extended their lead in the AL East. The big lefthander, who has pitched at least 230 innings in each of his three seasons with New York, just didn't feel like a real ballplayer when hurt.

James Shields, B.J. Upton and CC Sabathia threw the Yankees into the All-Star break on quite the roll. Shields and Upton made egregious throwing errors that let Robinson Cano score the only run, sending New York to a 1-0 victory over the visiting Tampa Bay Rays yesterday. "You usually don't win a 1-0 game like that," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. A day after Derek Jeter got five hits, including No. 3,000, All-Stars Shields (8-7) and Sabathia (13-4) staged a classic pitchers' duel, matching zeros until the bottom of the seventh inning.

CLEVELAND - CC Sabathia took out any anger for being snubbed as an all-star by striking out 11 in seven shutout innings, Curtis Granderson homered twice and Derek Jeter moved closer to 3,000 career hits as the New York Yankees roughed up the Cleveland Indians, 9-2, on Tuesday night. Jeter went 2 for 6 and now has 2,996 hits, leaving him four shy of becoming the 28th major leaguer - and first Yankee - to reach 3,000. Sabathia (12-4) allowed five hits, walked two and overpowered the team that drafted him in 1998 and traded him 10 years later.
