Rhoden also had to deal with plate umpire Drew Coble, who reminded him before the game that illegal pitches would not be tolerated. Rhoden declined to discuss what Coble had said, but Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said he was annoyed that Coble would confront his pitcher in any way. "That's selective, and it's harassment," Steinbrenner said. "There's no reason for him to talk to my pitcher just before the game, on the field in front of 50,000 people."
The Yankees, without Rickey Henderson, Willie Randolph, Gary Ward and Wayne Tolleson in their starting lineup, did score - getting more runs than they have in any game in their past 13 and more hits (17) than they had since June 26. Four runs, two driven in on a single by Dan Pasqua, came in the third inning against losing pitcher Jeff Robinson (7-5). [Mike Pagliarulo] hit his 21st home run, against Eric King, in the fifth inning for another two runs, and [Don Mattingly] and pinch hitter Ward drove in one run each against Mark Thurmond in the sixth.
