More Buehrle, please
The Yankees beat up on their good friend Mark Buehrle on Friday night in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jays.
Buehrle is now 1-13 in 20 career starts vs the Yankees, is winless in his last 16 starts against them and has lost his last 11 decisions vs the franchise. Here’s what that means:
• Buehrle’s 1-13 record vs Yankees is the worst among any pitcher that has at least 20 starts vs Yankees in last 100 years
• His 11 straight decisions lost matches the longest losing streak by a left-handed pitcher vs the Yankees in the last 100 years
• Buehrle’s 16-start winless streak is the second-longest streak against the Yankees in last 100 years, behind only Slim Hariss (19 straight from 1920-25)
Jacoby Ellsbury had another strong offensive game, becoming the first Yankee leadoff batter ever with a triple and a homer in a game at Toronto (Brett Gardner would later match his feat in the series finale).…
