This was the first time ever that the Yankees won a game, in Minnesota, where they used six pitchers (or more) in a nine inning game. How’s that for history?
Thank goodness for the Twins. The Yankees record against them offsets how the Yankees have played the Red Sox, so far, this season.
Really, the Yankees are 51-34 now on the season – which is a .600 winning percentage. But, the Yanks are also 0-8 against the Red Sox and now 7-0 against the Twins.
Take out those games against the Twins and Red Sox and the Yankees record is 44-26 – which is a .629 winning percentage.
Man, if the Yankees had only split those eight games with the Red Sox…then they would have the best record in baseball…one game better than the Dodgers…managed by some guy named Torre…
