NOT LIKE LAST YEAR: Last night, the Yankees took their first loss against a rookie pitcher this season. According to Elias, the Yankees were the last Major League team to be beaten by a rookie starter this season.
IN THE PARK: The Yankees have gone seven straight games without allowing a home run, their longest stretch of the season and their longest since a seven-game streak in 2008. Last time they went eight straight was in 1999.
GO-GO GARDNER: Brett Gardner is 24-for-28 on stolen base attempts since May 20, having stolen his past 15 in a row without being caught.
UPDATE, 7:34 p.m.: One turn through the lineup, both Brett Gardner and Derek Jeter have singled, the only run has come from Curtis Granderson’s two-run home run, and Gardner has stolen a base. Does any of that affect Girardi’s consideration of a lineup change?
UPDATE, 8:12 p.m.: Colon last night, Garcia tonight. They’re making it a little easier to forget about those starts last week.
UPDATE, 8:31 p.m.: That’s a big-time catch by Granderson. He really smacked that wall, but there was never any doubt that he had it. Garcia is through five innings scoreless. It’s still 2-0 Yankees.
UPDATE, 9:02 p.m.: Nunez kicks another one, but this time it’s ruled a base hit for some reason. Here’s Logan to face Kotchman with two on and two out in the seventh.
UPDATE, 9:05 p.m.: Now they’ve got it right. That’s an E5 on Nunez. Still Logan facing Kotchman.
UPDATE, 9:08 p.m.: That looked like a Cervelli fist pump out of Martin. Logan gave a mini-version of the Robertson fist pump. That’s a huge out in a huge spot. Still 2-0 Yankees.
