Yanks 30 over .500 (Postgame Notes 14 August 2009)

Doing this one in bullet form because it's late and I'm tired:

  • The Yankees have a .902 OPS in the 7th inning or later. The next closest is .787.
  • The Mets have 69 HR all year; the Yankees have 68 from the 7th inning on alone.
  • Andy Pettitte's 10 strikeouts are a season high for him and match the season highs of CC and AJ. Oh, and he did it in six innings. Ken Griffey, Jr. was the only Mariner not to strike out. Which would be why he's Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • Brian Bruney threw a greater percentage of strikes tonight than did Mariano Rivera, but Rivera still retired the side on nine pitches.
  • Mark Teixeira is making quite the case for an MVP award, no?
