CC Sabathia became the 17th pitcher in MLB history to reach the 3,000 strikeout mark.

Sabathia also became only the 3rd left-hander in Major League history to reach 3,000 strikeouts.

The Yankees lefty earned the strikeout in the bottom of the 2nd inning against the Diamondbacks as he struck out John Ryan Murphy on a change up.

Sabathia, 38, is in the final season of his 19-year career as he announced his intentions to retire at season’s end back in February.
