The Yankees-Red Sox doubleheader is STILL being played
–In game one of their double header, the Yankees combined to strike out 18 Red Sox. It tied a franchise record that’s only been done one other time in Yankees’ history (Ron Guidry).
–Via @benshpigel: Austin Kearns now has more strikeouts (38) in 101 ABs as a Yankee than Jeff Keppinger (36) has in 509 ABs with Houston.
—In the second game, Bill Hall entered as a pinch runner. Yes, a pinch runner.
—-The Yankees had three errors in one inning.
–Ubaldo Jimenez: eight innings, three hit shut-out baseball with ten strikeouts and two walks…and gets a no decision.
—-Fifteen wins in the first half, he ends the season with nineteen wins, total.
–Both Chris Carters homered.
—Combined, they have seven.
–Rod Barajas stand up triple.
–Charlie Morton went 6 innings, 2 runs, 9 Ks
—He dropped his ERA all the way to….7.27
–Neftali Feliz has forty saves. He’s a rookie.
–The Massive Tie Scenario where the Padres, Giants and Braves end the season with the same record is still alive and well.
