And no, it's not "Why was there so little of it?" Though I'd really like the answer to that one.

This is more of a historical-statistical thing. We are always hearing some weird stat during the games like, "That was the first time a left-handed right fielder has gotten two doubles in two-thirds of an inning off a three-fingered relief pitcher since 1933" or whatever. I have no way of knowing whether what happened tonight was at all unusual, but maybe someone else does.

The Yankees got exactly four hits against the Rangers tonight: One home run (Rodriguez), one double (Posada), one single (Molina), and one triple (Giambi, mirabile dictu). In other words, four different hitters combined on a cycle, in a game in which the team got no other hits.

Does that happen often?
