Derek Jeter did not make himself available to the media after the game, which is very unusual for him. He is hitless in 12 at-bats for the first time this season. David Price became the first pitcher to strike Jeter out three times in a game since Curt Schilling in on April 19, 2004 at Fenway Park.
Like it mattered, right? The Yankees won 3-2 on a walk-off homer by Nick Swisher. It was the third time Swisher has homered from both sides of the plate this season. He now has 26 homers (five at the Stadium) and 77 RBI.
“I guess I was due,” Swisher said. “The guys were kind of giving me a hard time about it, saying I had my one for this month.”
