Quick Hit: Not Holmes...

Clay Holmes no longer has a perfect ERA, after giving up 4 runs in the 9th. Yankees lose 5-4.

I think Clay Holmes was rusty from too many days off. Between the sweep in Minnesota and the sweep of the Chicago White Sox, Holmes had very few opportunities to pitch and stay sharp. Short relievers tend to be casualties of teams with long winning streaks in which their teams had a large enough lead in each of their "sweep victories" that there were no "save situations" and the short reliever ends up sitting for too many consecutive games, making him a lot less effective when he DOES get into a game.

True, but before that, the Yankees were leading by too many runs for them to use him for multiple games in a row, and I think that hurt him.

This is the 3rd time this season a Yankee starter went 7+ innings and allowed no more than 1 run and the team lost the game. That's the most such losses in MLB.

Yankee starters have an 0.86 ERA over their last 8 games. That's the lowest starting pitcher ERA over any 8-game span by the Yankees since September 1968.

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
