2009 June in Review

Let’s briefly review the Yankee in June and check their status in the standings:

June Record: 15-11 (.577)
Overall Record:  44-32 (.579)
Divisional Standings:  Down 2.5 games to Red Sox
Wild Card Standings:  Up 1.5 games to Rays

June in Review:
The Yankees finished up May winning 14 of their last 18 games to move into first place in the AL East. They started out June winning five of seven, but it went downhill from there. After getting swept by Boston and barely taking two of three from the Mets, the Yankees lost two of three to the Nationals and Marlins. But after losing the first game of the Braves series, the Yankees won their next six games against the Braves, Mets and Mariners.

Ahead in July:
The Yankees are done with interleague play, and will play mostly AL Central and West teams in July. Besides the four-day All-Star break, the Yankees play everyday in July (27 games; 16 home, 11 away).

Teams they will face in order: Mariners (H), Blue Jays (H), Twins (A), Angels (A), Tigers (H), Orioles (H), Athletics (H), Rays (A) & White Sox (A).

Opponents combined record as of July 1: 355-340 (.511)
