The Yankees were eliminated in four games, the first time they’ve been swept in a postseason series since 1980 (and the first time in a four-gamer since 1976).
- The Yankees batted .188 in the postseason, the lowest ever for a team with a minimum of seven games.
– Cano, Granderson, Swisher, and A-Rod combined to go 14-for-125 with one home run. Yep.
Adam Wainwright is the first Cardinal to go 7 IP and allow one run or fewer in the postseason since 2006. They’ve obviously been there since.
- That pitcher in 2006 was… Jeff Suppan.
