To quote Vizzini: “Inconceivable!”

vizziniMariano Rivera has allowed one earned run since June 16. His line since then:

28 innings
13 hits
1 earned run
6 walks
29 strikeouts

Opponents have hit .135 against him during that stretch. The man throws one pitch, is 39 and had shoulder surgery last fall. If years from now it was learned he was some sort of advanced alien life form, would you really be surprised?

Meanwhile, Nick Swisher has not hit a home run at Yankee Stadium since June 8. He has hit three in the Bronx all season, as many as he has at Camden Yards this year.

The Yankees are 35 games over .500. That’s their best since they finished the 2004 season 101-61.
