  1. Morton pitched five because there was a rain delay in the top of the first that lasted for an hour and a half. Surprised he even came back out.

  2. Also in the Yankee-Rays game: lightning struck the stadium, and, minutes after the YES broadcast resumed, both FanGraphs AND Eastbound and Down were referenced. Perfect storm.

  5. And the rain delay was in the middle of an at-bat; it was 1-2, I think, with the bases loaded and two out when lightning hit and they cleared the field for an hour and a half. When he came back he managed to get a force out on a very nice play by d’Arnaud. He also threw a ton of pitches in the first two innings (I think he was at 30 at the rain delay) so even though his pitch count wasn’t that high, it wasn’t that surprising when they pulled him. He also wound up running the bases in the fifth.

    The intentional walk didn’t start intentional, btw; he went to two balls on the hitter and then they finished it intentionally.

  6. brantley isn’t playing CF because carrera is better there defensively, and the indians don’t really have anyone else to play LF anyway. the OF of brantley, carrera and buck/kearns isn’t much offensively, but it’s not bad defensively.
