Milestone Watch: Derek Jeter is 3 hits away from tying Lou Gehrig on the Yankees all-time hit leaders list, and 4 hits away from passing him. The Yankees play two today, so there's a good chance it will happen.
CC=Cruise Control: Sabathia is 6-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his last 7 starts.
Some Old Friends Are Back: Shelley Duncan and Brett Gardner are both back on the roster today. Gardner is coming back from a wrist injury and will be instrumental to the team's postseason roster with his speed and defense.
