• Shane Greene celebrated his first big league victory on Monday, hurling six innings of two-run ball in a 5-3 win over the Indians, and it earned him another start. Greene is scheduled to pitch on Saturday against the Orioles in Baltimore, with Chase Whitley moved to bullpen duty.
"It's a combination of everything. He did a really good job last night," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Giving Whit a little break will help him and maybe re-energize him as well."
• Greene earned his first Major League win on the same night as Dellin Betances recorded his first Major League save. That marked the third time that has happened involving Yankees pitchers, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Al Closter and Fritz Peterson did it in 1971, and Vidal Nuno and Adam Warren did it earlier this season.
• On this date in 2000, the Yankees played the first two-stadium, split-admission doubleheader in nearly 100 years, with the Yankees sweeping both games from the Mets by scores of 4-2. Dwight Gooden defeated his former club in the day game at Shea Stadium, and Roger Clemens hit Mike Piazza in the helmet during the memorable nightcap in the Bronx.
