Via ESPN Stats & Information, this is what has happened when Sonny Gray has pitched to Gary Sánchez and Austin Romine. Asked if Gray liked pitching to Romine because Romine seemed more proficient at catching balls in the dirt, Yankees manager Aaron Boone today said: "No. I don't think it's that. When he came over here they kind of connected and got on the same page. I think it's a comfort level and hopefully this is one thing that'll be the start of Sonny starting to turn the corner, because obviously he's important."

According to the Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton and Masahiro Tanaka were the beneficiaries of a couple of calls MLB just changed. Stanton's reach-on-error in April 12's loss at Boston was changed to an infield single. It means his average will rise from .213 to .225 entering Wednesday's game. Tanaka also will lose a hit and earned run that came in the April 17 loss to Miami. Cameron Maybin originally had reached on a hit plus an error. The hit has been removed, and the play changed to a two-base error.

A day game may benefit Houston in avoiding a sweep: The Astros have scored 57 runs in their 9 day games (6.33 runs per game), giving them the third-highest runs per game mark in day games in the Majors behind the Yankees (6.67) and the Braves (6.57).

Albert Pujols talked to me about joining Adrián Beltré as the only two players born in the Dominican Republic with 3,000 hits: "It's very special, especially knowing all the Dominican players that come through the big leagues. To be able to accomplish that has been unbelievable. But I really don't think about it. When I hit it, when that moment comes, I'll probably be more focused on it. But right now, my job is to try and win every game and to try to help this ball club win. That's my goal. I don't play for records, I play to win a championship. And there would be nothing better than to bring a championship this year to the city of Anaheim. That's my main focus. So I'm aware, because I mean, I'm human. I'm aware of where I'm at. We have big numbers in our stadium that show you every day! It's going to be a very special moment whenever it happens. But I really don't look for it, I really just let it happen. Just like I have with the 500 and 600, and ignore the distractions."
