Thirteen: WhiteSox-Yanks Gamer IV

With thirteen games left in the season, the Yankees have six games left at the Stadium and though post-season chances are (have been?) a mere pipe-dream, there are several interesting personal achievements that may be reached tonight.  Jeter may pass the Iron Horse for the most hits at the Stadium.  Mo may pass Lee Smith to record more saves than any pitcher other than Hoffman.  And Alex Rodriguez may continue to thumb his nose at detractors by hitting 35 home runs in 11 consecutive seasons, a feat accomplished by only one other player — some guy named Ruth — though those detractors would have you believe that not one of ARod’s came "when it counted."

Mark Buehrle goes for the PaleSox, Alfredo Aceves gets his first start at The House That Ruth Built.  There are likely just fifty-four innings left; Aceves may well get the last one ever for a Yankee, as the rotation currently sits, next turn against Baltimore.  That’s one for the scrapbook.  Comment away.
