There has been a lot of talk lately about the Yanks struggles with runners in scoring position. Wallace Matthews in his Rapid Reaction blog on ESPNNewYork.com wrote about last night’s Yankee 3-2 win over the Royals. Dewayne Wise‘s bunt single in the fifth broke an 0-for-16 stretch by the Yankees w/RISP. Derek Jeter‘s opposite-field RBI single with the bases loaded was the first bases-loaded hit for the Yankees since Robby Cano’s grand slam on May 6, off the same pitcher, Luke Hochevar. But, as we reach the quarter-pole of the 2012 season we have a pretty good sense as to how teams are doing in this critical statistic.
