Mariano could get another Cy Young save

This might not come into play tonight, after Mariano Rivera threw 25 pitches against the Blue Jays and blew his first save in eight chances last night, but it’s a cool stat worth passing along nevertheless:

With 2005 Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon starting for the Yankees, Rivera has a chance to join Goose Gossage and John Franco as the only relievers in Major League history to record saves in games won by six different Cy Young Award winners, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

  • Rivera has saved games for Dwight Gooden, David Cone, Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson and CC Sabathia.
  • Gossage saved games for Ron Guidry, LaMarr Hoyt, Catfish Hunter, Sparky Lyle, Gaylord Perry and Rick Sutcliffe.
  • Franco saved games for John Denny, Gooden, Orel Hershiser, Bret Saberhagen, Tom Glavine and Frank Viola.

Elias also passes along this note about the Yankees offense:

The Yankees are the only Major League team that has not scored as many as four runs in an inning this season. The Yankees’ streak of 131 straight innings at the plate without scoring four or more runs is their longest to begin a season since 1966 (139 innings) and their longest streak at any point during one season since a stretch of 135 innings in May 2008.
