CC Sabathia was a little wild in his debut with the Milwaukee Brewers but still delivered as advertised in a 7-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies last night.

Sabathia (1-0) gave up two earned runs and five hits over six innings in his first outing since being traded by Cleveland on Monday. The reigning AL Cy Young winner walked five, tying the season high he set back in April.

Sabathia allowed a double and two singles as the Brewers took a 4-1 lead after five innings.

Sabathia got in trouble in the sixth, loading the bases with no outs. Yorvit Torrealba doubled down the right-field line for two runs, but Sabathia got out of the inning without giving up the lead.

Milwaukee's Ryan Braun hit his 22nd homer in the first, a three-run drive off Rockies starter Mark Redman (2-4).
