SAVINGS PLAN: Dave Robertson recorded his 43rd career save last night and is now one save shy of tying Rafael Soriano for eighth place on the Yankees’ all-time saves list. Seventh-place Lindy McDaniel (48) is the only other Yankee that Robertson is in range of this season. Robertson has 35 saves this season, making him the sixth player in franchise history to record at least 35 saves in a single season (also Rivera-12x, Righetti-2x, Soriano-1x, Wetteland-1x and Lyle-1x).

ROLL CALL: With Josh Outman’s appearance last night, the Yankees have now used 53 players this season, the second-highest total in franchise history (they used 56 in 2013). Of those 53 players,?28 made their debut with the team, and eight of those made their MLB debuts (Anna, Greene, Mitchell, Ramirez, Solarte, Tanaka, Wheeler and Whitley).

BIG CITY LIVING: Michael Pineda has allowed two-or-fewer earned runs and five-or-fewer hits in seven consecutive starts, tied for the longest streak by a Yankees pitcher since at least 1914. Ron Guidry also produced seven such starts consecutively in 1981.
