Notes: Thornton deflection dooms Yanks

There was a ballgame Thursday, although few Yankee beat writers, this one included, saw much of it because of the lengthy Brian Cashman conference call that ate up the fifth inning, and the scramble to get the Tanaka news out on our various media platforms as quickly and accurately as possible. As a result, many of us missed what might have been a key play in the game, when Matt Thornton deflected Jason Kipnis' grounder that was headed toward Derek Jeter and might have turned into a bases-clearing double play.
