• Second baseman Robinson Cano has 151 career home runs, two shy of tying Joe Gordon for the second most by a Yankees second baseman. Tony Lazzeri owns the most homers for a Yankees player whose primary position was second base, with 169.


• On this date in 2009, Mariano Rivera closed out a 3-1 victory at Cleveland, marking the 58th time he has preserved an Andy Pettitte victory. The pair surpasses Bob Welch and Dennis Eckersley (57) for the most win-save instances of any duo in Major League history.
