TIME/TV: 10:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: Temperatures in the 60s. Not much chance of rain. Another pretty nice day out here on the west coast.

UMPIRES: HP Todd Tichenor, 1B Dale Scott, 2B CB Bucknor, 3B Bill Miller

SHUT THEM DOWN: The Yankees allowed a total of seven runs in their four-game series in Seattle. It was their fewest runs allowed in a four-game series since holding Tampa Bay to six runs in a four-game sweep in 2009.

AWARD WINNERS: The Yankees face 2005 Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon tonight. They are 6-0 against past Cy Young winners this season, including one win against Colon. CC Sabathia has previously started against two past Cy Young winners, beating Justin Verlander and taking a no-decision against Felix Hernandez.

POWER OF FIVE: The Yankees are 20-0 when scoring at least five runs this season. According to Elias, they are the only Major League team that remains undefeated when scoring five runs this season.

UPDATE, 10:09 p.m.: Day off didn’t hurt him. There’s another hit for Gardner.

UPDATE, 10:46 p.m.: Internet here is a pretty significant problem for me. Updates seem to be disappearing, but if you’re able to see this one, the A’s are up 2-0 on a first-inning homer — after the Yankees blew a bases-loaded opportunity in the top of the inning — and a second-inning double that landed between Cano and Overbay.

UPDATE, 10:50 p.m.: Cespedes is out of the game. Not sure why.

UPDATE, 11:26 p.m.: Good grief, CC just does not pitch well in this building. Two-out, three-run home run for Norris has the A’s up 5-0.

UPDATE, 12:02 a.m.: Really, just awful in this stadium. Wild pitch, and a bad one, lets another run score.
