  • The Nationals have now lost four straight and thirteen of sixteen.
  • The Yankees are now 15-5 in their last 20 home games.
  • A-Rod continues to slump by going 0-3 tonight. He has not had a full day off since coming off the DL, maybe now is the time.
  • This is the second game in a row that the Yankee starter has gone at least 7 innings. That's what you expect every time with a rotation like this.
  • Mariano Rivera tied Allie Reynolds on the Yankee career strikeout list.
  • Tonight was the 22nd come from behind win for the Yankees.
  • Jeter left the game with "left ankle stiffness." We'll wait to see what the real story is and get a post up immediately if not sooner.
