Key To A Series Win:
Hit Left Handed Pitching:
It has gotten to the point where teams will just throw all their lefties at the Yankees because they are absolutely inept at hitting southpaws.
The Yankee offense is 29th in all of major league baseball with a .291 slugging percentage and 27th with an OPS of .609 against left-handed pitching.
Although the Bombers did take two out of three against three left-handed starters this weekend, they only scored a six runs against starters over the 18.2 innings they pitched.
Although they’re baffled and can’t quite wrap their heads around the issue, they’ll have to figure it out soon. Especially with David Price being the probable starter on Sunday Night Baseball next week.
