This edition of the Pinstripe Pulse will cover the Yankees' previous 10 games, from August 13th through the 22nd (the minor leaguers were playing on the 23rd, so that day's statistics were included as well). The Yankees averaged 4.1 runs per game, down from the 5.7 runs per game they scored during the previous period, and they went 5-5 against the Rangers (3-1), Red Sox (2-1), and White Sox (0-3). They won a tough series against one of the best teams in baseball, but then they were swept by a division leader to end the stretch. It's unfortunate that the sweep happened, but the White Sox have been terrific all year. Alas.
