Yanks Sweep Double-header; Magic # down to 16

For a complete recap, check out my post on The Yankee Universe

  • Perhaps it's a microcosm of how this season has gone for the Yankees, but both Sabathia and Burnett turned in stellar outings
  • In the first game, the Yankees remained deadlocked at 1-1 in a pitchers' duel until the eighth.
  • In the second game, the Yankees scored eight runs in the third inning, and never looked back, notching Burnett his first win since the end of July.
  • Derek Jeter went hitless, the first time in his career in a double-header.
  • Larry Mahnken of Replacement Level fame mentioned to me that the Yankees are now getting above league-average production at every position.
