  • Yanks have lost 6 straight games and 10 of their last 11 when the opposing team scores first.
  • Yanks have scored 2 runs or less 32 times this season in 93 games, which is one fewer than they had all last season.
  • Since July 2nd, Yanks have scored just 20 runs in 8 games and are batting just .207 as a team (.202 w/ RISP) with two homers. Jason Giambi is 3-for-22 (.136), Bobby Abreu is 6-for-24 (.176), and Jorge Posada is 5-for-26 (.192) during that span.
