Is there anybody still out there?

Here are a few postgame notes for you night owls:

Joe Torre now has 2,009 wins, tying Leo Durocher for ninth place in history. Walter Alston (2,040) is in eighth place.

Torre said he was impressed with Igawa for four innings. Then the lefty couldn’t get the ball down. Gil Patterson, the minor-league coach who worked with Igawa in Tampa and Scranton, was here and said the K-Man did what they wanted in terms of adjusting his delivery.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Barry Bonds would play tomorrow. They hand out little pins that say “I was there” when Bonds hits a homer.

Scott Proctor is the 442nd pitcher to allow a home run to Bonds. A radio reporter from San Francisco asked Proctor if there was, “something special about joining that club.”

To his credit, Proctor didn’t break a chair over the guy’s head. “It’s a club you’d rather not join,” he said. Proctor actually made a pretty decent pitch to Bonds.

The Yankees, to a man, were impressed with AT&T Park and the atmosphere here. “This is a cool place,” Robinson Cano said. “The fans are close to the field and it’s a nice field. I’m glad we’re here.”

Here are a few minutes of Joe Torre’s postgame:
