Yankees at Mets: Recap

Bruney looked brilliant.  He's going to be a crucial piece to the division crown.

Jorge juiced one.

Pena made a pretty play.

And AJ Burnett looked like a $16 million dollar man.

It's really all about the pitching: the Yankees have allowed only one run to the Mets so far, and a 3.72 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP in June.

Let's break that down a little.

In April, the staff averaged 3.9 BB/9.  In May, 4.0.  In June, 3.3.

Meanwhile, the K/9s have jumped 7.1, 7.5, to 8.5.  To look even deeper, it's the relievers who have suddenly become dominant.

Coke has been untouchable in June: 11.2 innings, only 8 baserunners against 12Ks.

Robertson has looked good since his return, too.  Did you realize he has 16 Ks in 9 June innings?

Aceves has of course been nasty- 15 baserunners in about 14 June innings.  I would argue that it is his role that is making the real difference.  The starters have averaged around 5.2 each month, but with Aceves locking down those crucial middle innings the other relievers have avoided overexposure and overwork.
