Guest Post: Yankees stats galore

The Good:
The victory last night makes the Yankees the first team in the majors with 70 victories on the season. They also were the first to break 600 runs scored on the season, and regained sole possession of the best run differential in the majors.

The Bad
Mariano Rivera's ERA is still above 1.00. He needs to pitch another three scoreless innings to have his ERA below 1.00 again.

The Ugly: 
[Stat] 17 strikeouts in win vs. Rangers. 17!  (Became eighth team in baseball history to strike out 17+ times and score 7+ runs and win the game.)

[Batting] Nick Swisher. 5-for-23, 12 K in past 6 games. 

[Pitching]  Javier Vazquez. 16 IP, 13 ER, 22 H, 9 K, 7 BB in last 3 starts (7.31 ERA, 1.81 WHIP).

Looking Ahead: 
4 vs. Detroit (55-59), 3 vs. Seattle, (44-71), 3 at Toronto (59-54), 3 at Chicago (64-50), 4 vs. Oakland (57-56): 

Cumulative record: .491
