Quick recap: Yankees 3, Rockies 1

Since this is a quick recap, let's have some fun with numbers:

  • CC Sabathia retired 11 batters in a row before the rain delay and had only thrown 51 pitches.
  • The rain delay lasted 1 hour and 59 minutes.
  • Mariano Rivera has converted 13 out of 13 saves.
  • The Yankees only scored six runs this series and still won two out of three games.
  • Robinson Cano got the 1500th hit of his career, clubbed his ninth home run of the season and collected RBI #20.
  • Vernon Wells picked up his 16th RBI of the season.
  • The Yankees' batters had six hits and seven strikeouts.
  • They only had two hits of the extra bases variety - Cano's dinger and Chris Nelson's double.
  • The Yankees' pitchers also threw more strikeouts to Rockies batters (5) than gave up hits to them (4). David Robertson helped that total with three K's of his own.
  • Sabathia was hitless in two at bats with two strikeouts.
  • The Yankees are now 20-13 (It's 2013)

Next up for the Yankees, a series in Kansas City that begins with a Phil Hughes-Wade Davis matchup.
