• Kevin Youkilis has played in all 10 of the Yankees' games this season. Girardi said that he had been planning on giving Youkilis a day off, but the two rainouts this week in Cleveland took care of the issue.

• On this date in 1978, the Yankees defeated the White Sox, 4-2, on "Reggie!" candy bar day at Yankee Stadium. Reggie Jackson hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and the field was showered with the chocolate and peanut treats, which were given out free to fans attending the game.
