That win for Mike Mussina was No. 249 in his career. He has won at least 10 games 16 years in a row.

The only other pitchers in history to do that are Greg Maddux (19 times), Cy Young (19), Steve Carlton (18), Don Sutton (17), Warren Spahn (17) and Nolan Ryan (16).

Joe Torre’s best comment of the night: “We still have work. We cannot allow ourselves to get caught up in what people will assume is a foregone conclusion. We need to play baseball.”

Here’s Torre’s postgame:

Yanks are 44-21 since the All-Star break, 22-9 at home.

AL East
Boston 90-62
New York 87-64 -2.5

AL Wildcard
New York 87-64
Detroit 83-69 -4.5

It’s hard to believe the Yankees were once 21-29. Now they’re two out in the loss column in the division and five up in the loss column in the wildcard with 11 games left. If they finished with the best record in baseball and another division title, it wouldn’t be a surprise at this point.

Toronto is the obstacle. They have Halladay, McGowan, Burnett and Marcum lined to start this weekend.
