NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia was dominant over eight innings in his rematch against Johan Santana, and Mark Teixeira hit a grand slam to help the New York Yankees beat the Mets 4-0 Sunday to secure a Subway Series split.

Sabathia, denied a shot at his first shutout of the season by a 22-minute rain delay in the eighth, allowed four hits. The Yankees won the final two games of the interleague series between crosstown rivals to even the season series at three games apiece.

The win, combined with Tampa Bay’s loss, moved the Yankees into sole possession of first place in the AL East for the first time since April 21.
