Too bad this is baseball and not….
The Yankees had 8 walks this evening. This is the third time this season that Yankees had 8+ BB in a game of nine innings or less where they lost. That’s pretty hard to do…
Since 1956, the only other Yankees teams to do “this” three or more times in a season were:
NYY 2000 5 Games NYY 1969 5 Games NYY 1986 4 Games NYY 1971 3 Games NYY 1968 3 Games NYY 1965 3 Games NYY 1980 3 Games
Hey, only two more to go…and then they tie the high-mark.
Speaking of records, New York is now 7 games back in the loss column behind Tampa Bay…with 49 games to play. First place is now in a galaxy far, far, away…eh? How soon until the Wildcard is just as far away?
