The New York Yankees had played 129 games – and finally registered exactly 8 runs in any contest this year – with an 8 – 1 drubbing over Kansas City last night – in a potentially crucial Wild Card matchup against one of the teams they maybe vying for a playoff spot with.
Why is this important?
Because the Bronx Bombers are the 30th team to complete their quest to score precisely 0 – 10 runs in 11 different variations in the MLB.
Atlanta was the 29th club to finish their mission, and they were done this at the 98 games mark – which was 31 matches ) faster than the “Pinstripers”.
Scoring 8 runs in a game was one of the tougher things to do for all other teams yes, but this Yanks lineup has doled out nearly $130 MIL in player contracts for the 2014 season on their offense alone.
The hitting has been pathetic to say the least – until the last 4 games. Joe Girardi should win manager of the year for this team even posting a winning record thus far.
Having 4 major Starting Pitching injuries should spell doom for any club, however that hasn’t been the problem with this squad.
It has been the 1 – 9 batters that have caused this franchise to struggle this campaign. Nevertheless, they finally pushed across the required amount. They are the last team to finish, and it happened 4 months and 2 days from when the Giants 1st finished their quest on Apr.23, 2014.
The Rays were the 1st AL club to finish 2 days later – and the Braves were the 29th club to do this – and that was done on July.20, 2014.
A.J. Burnett threw 7 innings of 3 hit, 12 strikeout ball, allowing a single solo homer and helped the Phillies stop the red hot Nationals, 3-2
Giancarlo Stanton got on base 3 times including a critical 3 run homer as the Marlins continued to climb into the Wild Card race and beat the first place Angels, 7-1.
Clay Buchholz pitched shutout ball into the 9th inning. He was undone by a softly hit ball into the infield and a blown save by the bullpen. But the Red Sox would ultimately win in Toronto, 4-3 after 10 innings.
Delmon Young got on base 4 times with a walk, a single, a double and a homer, driving in 3 and leading a potent Orioles attack to a 9-1 drubbing of the Rays.
