Game 109. Yanks beat Boston, 6-4.

Derek Jeter inched closer to sixth place on the all-time hits list with two more hits, driving in two runs, as the Yanks beat Boston 6-4 on Saturday.

The Yanks (56-53) picked up a game on division-leader Baltimore and are now five back of the Orioles. They also picked up a game on the Toronto Blue Jays and are 2 1/2 out of the final wild card spot.

Shane Greene started and went 4 2/3, giving up 3 R, 6 H, 2 walks and 5 K. 3.68. He gave up 3 in the second but then settled down. He threw 96 pitches though, so Girardi pulled him one out short of a possible win.

After Boston got 3 in the bottom of the second, the Yanks bounced back with four in the top of the third. Prado, Cervelli and Gardner all walked. Jeter doubled in two. Ellsbury got an RBI groundout and Beltran singled in Jeter.

Mark Teixeira’s 19th HR of the season made it 5-3 in the fifth. The HR was #360 for Teix, putting him one behind Joe DiMaggio all-time.

Doubles by Beltran and Stephen Drew in the seventh made it 6-3, and Boston got one run in the bottom of the inning.

After Greene left the game, Shawn Kelley (2-3, 3.38) came in and got the win. 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 3 K.

Adam Warren has struggled lately and continued to do so. 1/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 walk, 0 K. 3.33.

Dellin Betances 1 2/3, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 1.52.

David Robertson picked up his 28th save. 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K. 2.81.

Jeter’s two hits put him at 3425 for his career, five behind Honus Wagner for sixth place on the all-time hits list.

Game 104. Yanks lose in 9th, 5-4.

Dellin Betances and David Robertson have been a formidable 1-2 punch this year but both made errors (physical and mental) to cost the Yanks on Sunday. Toronto beat the Yanks 5-4 to drop the Yanks into 3rd place in the AL East, four back of Baltimore. The Yanks (54-50) are a game behind Toronto for the final wild card spot.

Shane Greene went 5 1/3, giving up 3 R, 8 H, 2 walks and 2 K. 3.28. He gave up a run in the first and then a solo HR in the fifth.

The Yanks tied it in the fifth on back-to-back HRs by Headley and Cervelli. Both teams scored in the sixth, the Yanks getting their run on a McCann Rbi single.

Then, mistakes. In the eighth, Betances walked the leadoff batter, then tried to pick him off. His throw was wild and the runner raced all the way to third and scored on a SF.

Carlos Beltran tied the game in the bottom of the 8th with an RBI single but in the top of the 9th, David Robertson lost the game. With one out, Melky Cabrera singled. Chase Headley made a great play to get a force on Cabrera, but then it seemed like Robertson fell asleep. Jose Bautista stole second, uncontested. He got such a great jump on Robertson it was like D-Rob, after Headley’s great play, just forgot to hold him on. Letting the potential winning run steal second so easily was a mistake that cost the Yanks the ballgame when Dioner Navarro singled in Bautista.

After Greene exited, David Huff went 2/3, 0 R, 2 H, 0 walks and 0 K. Overall ERA 4.04.

Betances 1 2/3, 1 R (unearned because of his error), 0 H, 2 walks, 1 K. 1.43.

Warren 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks, 1 K. 2.75.

Robertson (L, 1-3) 1 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks, 0 K, 2.50.

Derek Jeter got one hit to go to 3417 for his career, two behind Carl Yastrzemski for 7th on the all-time list.

Games 95-98. Yanks sweep Reds, lose opener to Texas.

First off, I’m sorry I haven’t been on in a few days. I switched my home phone to something that would save me $30 a month. What they didn’t tell me was I’d lose my DSL access and I’ve been struggling the past few days to get that restored.

Without that, I had no internet access.

So a brief recap of the Yanks since the All-Star break.

They swept the Reds three straight.

Friday the Yanks beat the Reds, 4-3. Phelps w, 4-4, 3.87. Robertson S, 2.67. Betances pitched, era to 1.42.

Ellsbury HR #7. McCann rbi, Beltran 2 hits, rbi.

Saturday a 7-1 win. McCarthy was great. 4-10, 4.63, but that is combined AZ/NYY. Gardner 3 RBI, Kelly Johnson 2 h, 2 rbi.

Sunday the Yanks got a gift. Kuroda was great, ND. Betances blew a 2-1 lead when he gave up a HR. But in the bottom of the 9th, Ellsbury (who saved a run with a sliding catch) got a hit. He was 4 for 4 in the game. He stole 2nd and went to third on a WP. McCann hit a popup that should have been caught but fell & Ellsbury scored the winning run. This put the Yanks at 50-47 and three back.

Tonight (Monday) the Yanks lost 4-2. Sometimes, when you try to squeeze another out of your starter, you don’t get it and such was the case tonight. Ellsbury had a HR (8) but the Yanks didn’t hit a pitcher they should have. They made five errors, three by starter Shane Greene.

Greene is now 2-1, 2.79. 5 2/3 tonight, 4 R, 5 H, 1 walk and 5 K. He entered the sixth with a 2-1 lead.

Thornton couldn’t save him. 2 batters, 2 hits.

Jeter is now at 3412 hits, 7 behind Yaz and 18 behind Wagner on the all-time hits list. He’ll be honored at the Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 7th.

Teix is out a few days with a strained lat.

The Yanks went into Monday night’s game 3 back in the AL East and 1 1/2 back of the final wild card spot.

I’m sorry for no details, but when you are trying to catch up on four games…

Game 93. Greene’s 2nd MLB start a great one. Yanks win 3-0.

Shane Greene has pitched in three MLB games. The last two were his first two MLB starts. He most likely has exceeded the Yanks’ expectations.

In the first start, Greene gave up 2 R in 6 IP and notched his first MLB win. Saturday he topped that, going 7 1/3 shutout innings, giving up just four hits, two walks, and striking out 9. He goes to 2-0, 1.32 as the Yanks beat the Baltimore Orioles, 3-0.

The Yanks got a run in the third when Cervelli singled, was forced by Gardner, Jeter singled and Teixeira doubled home Gardner. On the play, Jeter was thrown out at the plate.

The Yanks added two in the seventh when Johnson singled, and after an out, moved up on a WP. With two out, Jeter singled in Johnson and went to second on the throw home. Ellsbury doubled in Jeter. Teix walked and McCann singled, but once again the Yanks had a runner thrown out at the plate.

Jeter’s two hits raised his career total to 3407, twelve behind Carl Yastrzemski on the all-time list.

David Huff relieved Greene, faced one batter and gave up a hit. 0 IP, 0 r, 1 H, 0 walks and 0 K. Overall ERA (SF/NYY) 4.46.

Shawn Kelley 2/3 IP, 0 r, 0 H, 0 walks, 1 K, 3.77.

David Robertson with save #23. 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 2 K. 2.76.

The win puts the Yanks at 47-46, 4 behind Baltimore in the AL East. They are one game behind 2nd place Toronto.

Sunday night’s game on ESPN is the last one before the All-Star break, meaning as far as pitchers go, it is all hands on deck. They all (except for Betances, who’ll be heading for the All-Star Game) will be getting a few days off.

Game 88. Yanks win 5-3. Shane Greene: 1st MLB start, 1st MLB win.

Shane Greene had only 1/3 of an inning of MLB experience before tonight. A relief appearance in which he gave up 3 runs, all unearned.

His MLB starting debut he made one to remember. He had a no-hitter for 4 2/3. He went 6 IP, 2 R, 4 H, o walks and 2 K. First MLB win, ERA 2.84.

The Yanks broke out to a 5-0 lead and held on to win 5-3.

In the second, McCann and Roberts hit back-to-back doubles for one run. Ichiro singled to move the runner up but was thrown out trying for two. Johnson walked and Cervelli was HBP to load the bases. Gardner singled in a run and Jeter walked with the bases loaded to make it 3-0.

Jeter got one hit tonight. #3401. 18 behind Yaz, now.

In the third, Teixeira walked and McCann singled. Roberts flied out, moving Teix up. Ichiro singled in a run and both runners then moved up on a balk. Johnson was HBP and Cervelli got an RBI on a forceout.

David Huff 1 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K. Overall ERA 4.46.

Betances 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K. 1st save on the year, ERA 1.55.

Gardner and McCann each w/3 hits, same with Ichiro. 2 hits for Roberts.
