On the double

The Yankees have gone double-play crazy the past two nights. Through the first four innings of Monday night’s game against the Orioles, the Yankees turned three double plays behind Freddy Garcia.

Entering the game, the Yankees were tied with Detroit with the fewest double plays (82) in the American League, and that was after a 5-DP game Sunday night against the Red Sox. Eight double plays in 14 innings are quite a few and much appreciated by the pitching staff. After all, the double play is a pitcher’s best friend.
