The Yankees runs per game, including this contest, beginning the day following that split Yankee/Shea Stadium day-night double-header:
June 28th: 3 runs
June 29th: 1 run
June 30th: 1 run
July 1st: 2 runs
July 2nd: 18 runs – Thank you, Warner Madrigal.
July 3rd: 0 runs
July 4th: 4 runs
July 5th: 2 runs
July 6th: 5 runs (in 10 innings)
July 8th: 5 runs
July 9th: 2 runs (in 10 innings)
July 10th: 2 runs
That’s 12 games in total – and, where New York has scored 2 runs or less in 7 of the 12 games. (And, in 8 of the 12 games they have scored 3 runs or less.)
Some offense, huh? The Yankees are very lucky that they have won 6 of these 12 games.
With a better offensive effort, they might have won 11 of the 12 games. Really. No kidding.
What a waste.
