Here are a few things I discovered while glancing through the stats:
The Yankees have hit 10 homers in their last four games, five of them by that Alex Rodriguez guy. … Derek Jeter has hit safely in 15 of the 16 games this season. … Scott Proctor seems to have his giddy-up back. He hasn’t allowed a run in his last six appearances. His line: 5.2 2 0 0 1 4. … A-Rod had 12 RBI in the last four games. … I still can’t get over that 18 of his 23 hits this season are for extra bases.
Here are the stories from today’s paper:
Mariano Rivera blew another save last night as the Red Sox rallied to beat the Yankees. Hopefully the National Guard is keeping the peace.
Jorge Posada is hurting as Jeff Karstens prepares for his season debut.
Back later with the lineups.
