Yankees: The first nine innings took 4 hours, 20 minutes. The record for a nine-inning game is 4: 21, set April 30 by New York and the Orioles. The Yankees stranded 17 runners in the first nine innings. The nine-inning record of 20 was set by the Yankees against the Red Sox in 1956. The crowd of 54,599 was the Yankees' third sellout of the year and their largest for a day game since Sept. 18, 1993, when they also played Boston.

Indians: Jim Thome's 37 homers are the second-most by a left-handed hitter in Cleveland history. Hal Trosky hit 42 in 1936.

Giants: Barry Bonds stole second base in the first inning for his 34th steal of the season, but was thrown out trying to steal third. He needs six steals in his last seven games to become only the second member of the 40-40 club. Oakland's Jose Canseco hit 42 home runs with 40 steals in 1988.

Padres: The sellout crowd of 53,629 was the sixth crowd of more than 50,000 this season, tying the team's record set in 1985.

White Sox: Frank Thomas is one home run shy of the team record for homers that he set in 1993. He also hit 40 in 1995, getting No. 40 on the last day of the season. Brad Radke, who last year gave up 32 home runs -- tying him for first in the majors -- has allowed 38 this season, tying him with California's Shawn Boskie for most in the majors.

Phillies: Curt Schilling needs four more innings to reach 180 and receive a $100,000 bonus.
