They can thank David Murphy for a hot bat....Murphy went into Wednesday's game hitting .421 (16-for-38) with eight RBIs in his past 12 games, and .364 with four home runs and 24 RBIs in his past 42 games.
Let's remember a couple of items from baseball history.
How many of you remember the first night game at Wrigley? It happened 24 years ago and it was shown nationally over WGN. I remember the whole thing. I think that the Cubs lost the game.
Also, the Yankees retired # 37 in 1970. It was Casey Stengel's number, or the manager who led the Yankees from 1947-60. They won the Series 9 times during his tenure. It was probably the most successful run in major leage history.
The Yankees have now retired # 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15 16, 23 32, 37, 44 & 49. They will soon add Rivera's # 42 & Jeter's # 2.
