The New York Yankees came out swinging Sunday in response to a story that ran in the New York Post that tickets for Derek Jeter’s Yankee Stadium farewell game on Sept. 7 have skyrocketed in price. While the Post reported that the ticket hikes are occurring on the secondary market — that is, for resale on ticket-broker sites — the newspaper also wrote that the Yankees “hiked the cheapest tickets on its Web site from $16 to $250 before quickly selling out.” The Yankees released a statement Sunday that the team has not and will not increase ticket prices for games this season. “The New York Yankees have not, did not, and will not raise any ticket prices for the game to be played in Yankee Stadium on September 7, or for that matter, any other game to be played at Yankee Stadium this season,” the statement read.

The Red Sox have scored the fewest runs in the AL.
