Two homers made the difference last night, but their RISP and LOB numbers are a big factor and have been all season............not to mention that numbers 2-5 in the batting order were 0 for 13 last night. Their mission is to get them on and get them in.

(43-28) Dogfight in Queens last night. Cano comes through with a solo shot to snap the tie. 3 for 8 with RISP with Swisher chalking up 3 RBI's. Both pitchers struggled at times and Dickey comes away with 5 earned runs.

You know very well that come playoff time pitching heavily outweighs hitting.

The heavy hitting Yankee bats usually get silenced by opposing pitching.

like last year, when only 72 runs were scored in the world series.

i think that, more than anything, just shows that the playoffs are unpredictable; in any given game, the yankees seem just as likely to smoke a top tier pitcher for 8 runs as get blitzed by a 7era rookie or journeyman.

edit: additional info, from http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/06/...sp-y-business/ regarding risp, and opposing pitching:
Quote:
since May 10th the Yankees have won games against David Price and Felix Hernandez (back-to-back nights), Justin Verlander, Johan Santana, R.A. Dickey, and Gio Gonzalez. All-Stars, Cy Young winners, and maybe the two best pitchers in the NL this year. Not a bad group. Yes, this Yankee offense beat them all.
Quote:
the 1996 Yankees were 11-for-50 with RISP in their six-game World Series victory over the Braves, and the 2001 Yankees were two defensive outs away from beating the Diamondbacks in the World Series, despite going just 6-for-36 with RISP in the seven game series.
Quote:
Remember all those clutch hits in ’01 by Jeter, Martinez, and Brosius? Home runs. All of them. And Alfonso Soriano nearly hit the series-winning home run in Game 7. But then in the bottom of the 9th… oh, never mind. You know how that ends.

(44-28) A nice performance by Kuroda ( 7 frames & 7 K's) and the Bullpen. Girardi is doing a great job by mixing and matching his roster. Now 3 games up on the Orioles. Hughes on the hill tonight vs. Masterson.

(48-26) Two more wins to sweep the Indians. Five games ahead of Baltimore in the A.L. East, but the loss of Sabathia & Pettitte will surely have an impact.

Sabathia is theoretically only missing 2 turns so shouldn't be a big deal.

Tonight's game hurt.

I was watching it without sound so...

...why was Soriano not in to close the game out?

Pitched four of the last five games, needed a rest.

(46-29) Nova kept it close, but the Bullpen let it slip away in the 9th allowing 3 runs. RISP 1 for 7. Warren makes his debut tonight on the hill

(46-30) Rout! After a 4-0 lead in the first, it was all down hill from there with the Rookie and Veteran giving up 6 runs each. RISP of 4 for 11 didn't help either.

That's .363 dude. Not sure what you're looking for! The bats weren't an issue today...

That's outstanding for a batting average, but you need to get them in after you get them on.

(47-30) Great effort by Kuroda and the Bullpen. 7 innings and 11 K's from the starter.

Old Timers Day @ 11:15 before the game.

League average with risp is around .260, so I still don't get the complaint. As far as getting them in, the Yankees aren't exactly having a problem with that, risp be damned.
