WEATHER: Thunderstorms are in the forecast. Why wouldn’t they be?

BETTER WITH SUN: The Yankees are 38-10 in day games this season. That’s a .792 winning percentage. According to Elias, the highest single-season winning percentage in day games since 1900 is .748 by the 1906 Cubs who went 116-36.

CHASING HOFFMAN: Mariano Rivera remains four saves away from passing Trevor Hoffman’s all-time saves record, but Rivera needs just one more appearance to pass Hoffman for ninth place on baseball’s all-time games pitched list.

ON THIS DATE: On September 8, 1925, Babe Ruth hit the 300th home run of his career off Buster Ross in a 7-4 Yankees win at Fenway Park. It was the second game of a doubleheader.
