36 — Per Elias, entering Saturday’s game, Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has a 36-game hit streak against the Indians. That’s now the longest streak against the franchise since Ken Griffey Jr. hit safely in 35 straight games.
6-1 — After Ryan Raburn’s three-run, walk-off home run on Friday night, the Indians are tied with the Kansas City Royals for the MLB’s best record in extra-inning games at 6-1.
2 HR in 2 — Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth this week became the second player with back-to-back multi-home run games after the Indians’ Ryan Raburn did it April 29-30.
0 top gems — As of the middle of this past week, the Indians were in the top-10 of ESPN’s Web Gems count with 20 but were one of only two teams without a No. 1 gem, saved for the best play of the night. The St. Louis Cardinals haven’t come in at No. 1, either. The Royals and Baltimore Orioles led the league in total Web Gems with 28 and 27, respectively.
42,000 — New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has now thrown more than 42,000 pitches since 2001, the most in all of baseball.
7 R in 3 — Sabathia also allowed seven runs in three consecutive starts for the first time over those 42,000 pitches.
1-for-23 — Yankees reliever David Robertson has a knack for getting out of a jam. Since 2011, opponents are 1-for-23 with the bases loaded against him.
0-6 — Yankees first baseman Lyle Overbay didn’t have the best games against Boston last week. He went 0-6 and grounded into two double plays. The last person to make eight outs in six at-bats? Mark Teixeria, against Boston last October.
None in 27 — Entering Saturday’s games, the Yankees haven’t had a home run from a right-handed batter in 27 games. That’s the longest streak since 1972.
No power — And since June 27, the Yankees have hit the fewest home runs (eight) while allowing the second-most (31).
6 K’s snapped — Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer only struck out five batters in his last start against the Chicago White Sox, snapping a streak of 19 consecutive starts of striking out at least six. It was the longest streak of that kind to start a season since Pedro Martinez (29) and Randy Johnson (23) in 2000.
0-to-a lot — After San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter last week, he was hit pretty hard in his next start, surrendering eight runs on nine hits to the Cincinnati Reds. He’s just the sixth pitcher to give up eight or more runs after a no-hitter since 1900. Philip Humber of the White Sox did it last season.
102.1 — Mark Ellis of the Los Angeles Dodgers singled off of the Reds’ Aroldis Chapman on a pitch that traveled 102.1 mph. It’s the fastest pitch resulting in a hit in five seasons.
