WEATHER: Temperature in the high 60s. Winter’s coming!

UMPIRES: HP Mike DiMuro, 1B Ron Kulpa, 2B Alfonso Marquez, 3B Ted Barrett

HOMER HAPPY: With Brendan Ryan’s home run on Friday, the Yankees have had a Major League-leading 23 different players homer for the club this season. It marks the most different Yankees to homer in a single season in franchise history, surpassing 22 different players with a home run in both 2000 and 1965.

ONE AWAY: Robinson Cano’s been red hot lately, and right now he’s one home run away from trying Dave Winfield for the 13th home home runs in Yankees history. Cano has 204. Winfield hit 205.

MIGHT AS WELL TOP ANOTHER LIST: The most saves a pitcher’s ever had in his final major league season is a tie between Robb Nen in 2002 and Jeff Shaw in 2001. Those two each had 43 saves, which is the same number Mariano Rivera has right now.

UPDATE, 1:39 p.m.: Inning might have played out differently without the error, but as it stands, that’s an earned run for Sabathia and a 1-0 lead for the Red Sox.

UPDATE, 1:48 p.m.: Double by Ortiz brings in another run. It’s 2-0 in the third inning and the Yankees have yet to get a man on base.

UPDATE, 1:53 p.m.: Four hits in this third inning. The Red Sox have another run and it’s 3-0. J.R. Murphy was part of a mound visit with Rothschild, and when that broke up, Murphy went back to the rubber twice to talk with Sabathia before finally going back to the plate.

UPDATE, 2:19 p.m.: This feels like a typical Sabathia start for this season. Just unable to get out of trouble and really limit the damage.

UPDATE, 2:49 p.m.: Second hard-hit extra-base hit for Granderson. Of course, it’s still a 5-1 game in the sixth, so one leadoff double isn’t having much impact.

UPDATE, 3:22 p.m.: Back-to-back walks to start the inning for Chamberlain, but he caught a break on a line drive that was ripped to Overbay for a double play. Two walks and a rocket.
