TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m, My9
WEATHER: Temperatures in the 70s. Kind of looks like it might rain, but the forecast says it won’t.
UMPIRES: HP Mike Muchlinski, 1B Tom Woodring, 2B Mike Winters, 3B Andy Fletcher
NO FREE PASSES: According to the Elias Sports Bureau, last night’s game was the first nine-inning Major League game in which both starters pitched a complete game and neither walked a batter since July 17, 2010, when Minnesota’s Carl Pavano beat Chicago’s Mark Buehrle, 3-2, at Target Field.
SAME RESULT, DIFFERENT UNIFORM: With last night’s shutout Brandon McCarthy has recorded a shutout while pitching for four different teams (Texas, Oakland, Arizona and the Yankees). He?is one of three active pitchers to have recorded shutouts for at least four different MLB teams, joining Kyle Lohse (Twins, Reds, Cardinals and Brewers) and Bartolo Colon (Indians, Expos, Angels, Yankees and Athletics).
TRADING PLACES: Earlier today, closer Dave Robertson rang the NYSE opening bell.
UPDATE, 7:14 p.m.: Couple of pretty weak singles to start this game for the White Sox. Now Greene facing Abreu with two on and no outs. Not ideal.
UPDATE, 7:17 p.m.: Three-run homer for Abreu. This seems like a good time to remind everyone that it’s been two weeks since the Yankees scored more than four runs.
