They should have scored more than one run in the first. With the bases loaded and one out in the fourth, they didnít score. Two hits and an intentional walk didnít produce a run in the seventh.Does this sound like the soundtrack of the Yankees when they donít win?
Of course it does, and the lack of clutch hitting cost the AL East champs last night in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Orioles at Camden Yards, where the Orioles evened the best-of-five series with a 3-2 victory that was witnessed by 48,187 chilled and stirred customers.
And who is the biggest culprit? My boy Nick Swisher. For those of you keeping score at home, last night’s game brings him to a whopping 1-for-33 with RISP in the playoffs with the Yankees. 1-for-33. I’m not even being facetious when I say I believe I could somehow get 2 hits in 33 chances. Sure the Yankees left 19 men on base so it wasn’t all his fault, but I’m looking at the body of work here. After an 0-4 last night (.167 for the playoffs), you might want to think about benching the dude, and certainly might want to think about not re-signing him.
