TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., MY9

WEATHER: They just announced that it’s 69 degrees. Another great night for baseball

UMPIRES: HP David Rackley, 1B Rob Drake, 2B Sam Holbrook, 3B Joe West

PETTITTE TO THE DL: About an hour before first-pitch, GM Brian Cashman made the announcement that Andy Pettitte is being placed on the 15-day DL with a strained trap. Pettitte left his start early last night with back spasms, and now the Yankees are taking the cautious approach by DLing him.

MAKING THEM BLUE: The Yankees have won seven straight home games vs. Toronto, and 18 of their last 21.

NO MORE THAN TWO: The Yankees are one of only two teams this season that have yet to lose more than two straight games (also Texas).

(I’ll be updating what’s going on in the game here every so often, but I’ll be much more active on Twitter. Follow me @vzmercogliano to join in the conversation!)

UPDATE, 8:33 p.m.: The Yankees tack on a second run in the fifth on a sac fly from Nix. They also scored in the first after Gardner led off with a triple and came home on a Cano groundball to the right side. Meanwhile, Kuroda is cruising on the mound. He’s allowed one hit all game — a leadoff double to Cabrera in the first.
