WEATHER: One more game with the option of a roof.

UMPIRES: HP Quinn Wolcott, 1B James Hoye, 2B Jim Reynolds, 3B Bob Davidson

Yankees right-handed batters hit four home runs on Tuesday, the most such homers by the Yankees from the right side since July 7, 2012 at Boston when Andruw Jones (2), Nick Swisher and Jayson Nix went deep. That’s from Elias.

DOUBLE UP: Yankees fielders have combined to turn nine double plays over their last three games, including a season-high four double plays on both Sunday at Tampa Bay and Tuesday at Toronto. The Yankees had last turned at least four double plays in a game on July 29, 2012 against Boston (five double plays). Prior to their current three-game stretch, they had combined for nine double plays over their previous 10 games.

DANDY: Andy Pettitte earned his 10th win of the season on Tuesday. He has now recorded at least 10 wins in a season 14 times with the Yankees, surpassing Whitey Ford (13) for the most such seasons in franchise history.

UPDATE, 7:32 p.m.: Chris Stewart clearly crossed up on the pitch from Kuroda, and the problem gets worse as his throw to first hits the runner and lets two runs score. It’s a 4-0 game in the first and the Yankees are in trouble with their best pitcher on the mound.

UPDATE, 8:18 p.m.: If Kuroda is going to stumble down the stretch, the Yankees significant trouble gets significantly worse.

UPDATE, 8:28 p.m.: Down by this much, not sure why the Yankees are trying to score Rodriguez in that situation. That ground ball by Ichiro probably would have scored the run if Rodriguez had stopped at third.
