Information from the Yankees’ media relations department:

THREE AND OUT: The Yankees have lost a season-high-tying three straight games for the fifth time this season… are one of only two teams who have yet to lose more than three consecutive games this season – also Cleveland.

BOMB SQUAD: The Yankees have hit a Major League-high 108HR this season, including 30HR over their last 17 games…marks their most homers ever through their first 69 games of a season (prev. high was 2002, 106HR)… are tied with the 2003 Braves and 1986 Twins for the ninth-most homers all-time through a team’s first 69 games of a season… hare 40-15 when hitting at least 1HR and 29-7 when hitting multiple home runs… are 1-13 in games in which they fail to homer.

TOUGH START: The Yankees allowed 5R in the first inning of Friday’s loss at Citi Field, marking their most first-inning runs allowed in nearly a year, since 7/14/11 at Toronto (8R)…according to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Yankees became the last team in the Majors to surrender more than four runs in any inning this season…   Elias also notes it was only the third time in Andy Pettitte’s 487 regular season starts he allowed at least 5R in the first inning (also 9/4/01 at Toronto-5R; and 8/21/95 at Oakland-6R).

Certainly were the Bronx Bombers today. Congrats to Raul & Chavez for providing the lumber today. Amazing how that game changed so quickly today.
