AT A GLANCE: The Yankees will begin a three-game series vs. the Toronto Blue Jays tonight… opened this six-game homestand taking two of three games from Los Angeles-AL… following this homestand, embark on their final West Coast trip with games at Oakland (7/19-22) and Seattle (7/23-25)… are in a stretch of 13 consecutive days with games immediately following the All-Star break.
Ø At 54-34 (.614), own the best record in the Majors… have a season-high-tying 8.0G lead in the AL East, marking the largest division lead in the Majors… should they gain another game in the standings to go +9.0 ahead, would match their largest division lead since being +9.0G after Gm 1 of a doubleheader on 9/25/11 vs. Boston (before falling to +8.0G after losing Gm 2)… last led the AL East by at least 9.0G at the close of play on a given day on 10/2/09 (were +9.0G).
Ø Are 20 games above .500, one shy of their season high-water mark.
Ø Have won six of their last eight games… are 23-9 since 6/8, 28-11 since 5/30 and 33-13 since 5/22… have gone 9-2-1 over their last 12 series dating to 6/1.
Ø Are 15-6 at Yankee Stadium since 5/22… their .614 (27-17) home winning percentage is fifth highest in the Majors (second in the AL behind Texas – 29-16, .644).

FOR OPENERS: The Yankees are 20-9 (.690) in series openers this season… according to the Elias Sports Bureau, only Cleveland (21-8, .724) has a higher winning percentage in openers… have won nine of their last 12 openers.

NORTHEAST CORRIDOR: Of the Yankees’ 38 remaining home games, 18 will come against Toronto and Boston – nine apiece (47.4%)…the Yankees also play Baltimore six times at Yankee Stadium.

Game 151: Yankees vs. Blue Jays

TORONTO — Will Canada see history? Well, there’s at least a chance. Joe Girardi was asked pregame today if there was any way he’d put somebody else in if there’s a save situation so that Mariano Rivera can get the saves record at Yankee Stadium (where the Yanks begin an eight-game homestand Monday). The answer was what you’d expect: Not a chance.

Girardi did nail down his rotation for early next week: Ivan Nova will pitch on Tuesday, CC Sabathia and Phil Hughes will start Wednesday’s doubleheader (not sure what order yet) and Bartolo Colon will go on Thursday. As for the lineup? Joe wants to give some guys a little rest.

“The guys have been going so hard, I figured we have an important 10 days coming up, try to give them a little bit of a blow,” Girardi said. “[Curtis Granderson] and [Derek Jeter] have really struggled against [Brandon] Morrow in their career, and I just thought today would be the day.”

Without further ado …

* Yanks win, Mo ties the save record, A-Rod goes deep, Grandy gets to 40

* Rivera one away from saves record

* Yankees Notebook, on A-Rod, Hughes, CC, Posada, etc.
