Not much point in over-analyzing this game. So here are a few assorted facts and figures:

• It was the largest shutout for the Yankees since a 15-0 victory at Toronto on Sept. 25, 1977. It was the largest shutout at home since a 15-0 victory against Detroit on Aug. 4, 1953.

• Yankees have won 14 of 19 at home.

• It was A.J. Burnett’s longest scoreless outing since last June 28 when he threw seven shutout innings against the Braves.

• Matsui has hit 10 of his 16 homers against lefties.

• The 15 runs were the largest margin ever in a Subway Series game.

• The nine earned runs were the most ever allowed by Johan Santana.

As for the Bruney/K-Rod thing, Bruney apologized for his actions after the game, saying he should have never criticized Rodriguez in the first place. Rodriguez took a pass on commenting other than to say that he considered the matter closed.

Bruney was hoping to apologize in person but before he could, K-Rod started to come at him and was intercepted by Mike Pelfrey and Jose Veras. Bruney never budged. There was a lot of yelling but no actual scrapping.

“I wasn’t trying to pick a fight,” Bruney said. “If anything I was hoping we could cross paths and bury the axe. For me it’s over with and hopefully for him it’s over with. It’s in the past.”
