(Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images) New York Yankees 7 — Cleveland Indians 0   Yankees split the doubleheader with a 7-0 win over the Cleveland Indians.   For the second game today, Vidal Nuno started the game. Vidal Nuno was effective and pitching in a timely manner. Through his five innings of work, he constantly faced the tying run as he received just a one-run lead. Nuno toughed out the fifth inning as he faced  two on, two out situation and he was already exceeding the pitch count Girardi had in mind for the 25-year-old left-hander. He would get a called strike three on his 89th pitch of the game. Through five scoreless innings, Nuno gave up three hits with three walks and three strikeouts. In the first inning, Indians starter Trevor Bauer was hurt by an error, both physically and statistically. A wide throw from first baseman Carlos Santana left Bauer exposed to be stepped on as Cano reached first base. Vernon Wells would ground out and bringing in the first run of the game. The Yankees wouldn’t get to Bauer until the seventh inning. Rookie second baseman Corban Joseph led off the seventh inning with his first major league hit, a double to center field. Catcher Austin Romine would come through with a double for his first major league run batted in to give the Yankees a two-run lead. Bauer would exit the game and left-handed reliever Nick Hagadone wouldn’t fare any better. A walk of Brett Gardner would assist in the rally. Jayson Nix, Vernon Wells, and Lyle Overbay would bring in four runs. The next reliever, Matt Albers, would allow another run to score on an error. The six-run seventh inning put the Yankees ahead by seven. Adam Warren came in in the sixth inning for Nuno. He would continue pitching for four innings and struck out four and allowed just two hits. The four innings he pitched would get Adam Warren his first major league save. In today’s second game, Vidal Nuno got his first major league win, Corban Joseph got his first career hit, Austin Romine got his first major league run batted in, and Adam Warren got his first major league save. The future may be bright for the  Yankees.   Win – Vidal Nuno (1-0) *First major league win* Loss – Trevor Bauer (1-2) Save – Adam Warren (1) *First major league save*   Notables Yankees *Vernon Wells – 2 for 4, R, BB, 2 RBI (22) *Lyle Overbay – 1 for 5, R, 2B, 2 RBI (22) Indians *Nick Swisher – 1 for 3, BB, 2B *Drew Stubbs – 1 for 3, BB   Current Yankees Record: 24-14   Get your Yankees Tickets from our friends at TiqIQ.

Call the History Channel: The Yankees activate Granderson and - it's as if something has torn in the cosmic grid - Travis Hafner goes down

This is scary. Today, the Yankees activated Curtis Granderson from the DL, after announcing that Travis Hafner will miss a few days, because his shoulder is barking, and he's having an MRI.Listen: When Travis Hafner goes or an MRI, you better get his mailing address, because the money question is whether it's weeks or months. That shoulder is going to look like a Doppler...

Joba, Mo have tense exchange

One thing to know about Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain: he really doesn't like it when he gets shushed, even by the greatest closer of all-time. 


Mantle family: Mickey didn't cheat

Mickey Mantle’s family issued a statement and retained a law firm on Monday to dispute the allegation that the Hall of Famer used a corked bat when he played.

Looks Like The Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain ‘Feud’ Is Over

It seems like New York Yankees pitchers’ Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain have made nice and their short lived ‘feud’ is over. The Yankees PR department pulled off a great PR move by Tweeting out a photo of the two pitchers hugging in the clubhouse on Sunday morning singling that all is well. It was reported that the two got into a tiff on Saturday prior to the Yankees game...

Mariano Rivera And The New York Yankees Love To Laugh

The New York Yankees are currently in first place in the AL East with the second-best record in all of baseball, so as soon as they have that best record in baseball status locked up – and maybe toss in a few highway robbery trades as well – all will be well in the universe, according to Yankees fans. One of the luxuries of being “business as usual” for baseball’s highest...

Joba Chamberlain gets in argument with Mariano Rivera

Reportedly, before the Yankees game against the Royals on Saturday, Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera exchanged words in the clubhouse.  Apparently Rivera was having trouble hearing the media’s questions because Chamberlain was speaking to loud to his family.  Rivera said “Joba! Yo! Bro! Shhh. Stop it.” Joba was having none of that from Rivera.   Chamberlain responded...

Yanks get shutout, split double dip

There wasn't enough time for the Yankees to tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or do much else on their short layover before going home. So during a quick stop in Cleveland, they went to Progressive Field and split a doubleheader that wasn't on the schedule when the season started. Vidal Nuno pitched five innings of three-hit ball to win his first major league start and...

Yankees’ Edwin Nunez on 15-day DL, Granderson rehabbing in Triple-A

The New York Yankees have yet another entry to the disabled list. On Sunday, May 12, the Yankees placed infielder Edwin Nunez on the 15-day disabled list due to tightness in his rib cage. Nunez last played on May 5, so he is eligible to return to the lineup on May 20. Indications are that Nunez should return by then.’s Bryan Hoch reported that Nunez strained...

Today, the Grandy Man lands. Which will it be? The one who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh, soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie? Or the one who strikes out twice a game?

Today, something will happen I never again expected to see:Curtis Granderson will rejoin the Yankees. I thought we'd trade him. Frankly, I hoped we would. Not that he's a villain. Grandy remains a solid world citizen - a good-deed-doer and role model to all. He plays fine defense and hits many HRs. It's just my lingering memory -- Curtis, trudging to the dugout, bat...

Yankees rally, defeat Mariners

Once Felix Hernandez tweaked his back, the whole game took an odd twist. Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Lyle Overbay delivered a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees rallied in the seventh inning after King Felix was forced to make an early exit, beating Seattle 4-3 Tuesday night. ''It was hard luck,'' Hernandez said. The Mariners' ace was...

Yankees continuing winning tradition

A few days ago, I mentioned to former Nick Swisher that I had picked his former Yankees teammates to finish last in the American League East. He smiled and shook his head. "Bro," he said, "you can't bet against those guys. You just can't." Lesson learned. When I walked into the Yankees clubhouse Tuesday afternoon, they were not last in the AL East....

Yankee History In Game One Today?

With Pukilis on the 60 -180 day DL, I have been able to watch Yankee games again.Today, game one in Cleveland, I saw what might be the worst line-up ever slated by the Yankees.  This is the history making component of the story.It was clear from the outset, that no one was going to get more than an occasional bunt single.  And we didn't.Cano is tired.  He swung at the first...

The Absurdities of Batter/Pitcher Match-Up Numbers

With all due respect to the Dillon Gee-John Gast match-up in St. Louis tonight, there’s one marquee pitching match-up on the schedule for tonight’s games: Felix Hernandez vs CC Sabathia in New York.
