Yankees host Royals, aim to improve on RISP

While their offense has improved in the past two weeks, especially with the focus and attempts at eliminating foreign substances being used by pitchers, the New York Yankees still experience difficulties hitting with runners in scoring position.

One of their worst showings in that area appeared Tuesday, and the Yankees hope they can avoid some of the same problems Wednesday night when they continue a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees have 63 runs and are 7-5 since the Red Sox swept them from June 4-6, and that disastrous series capped a stretch of 10 losses in 13 games. On Tuesday, the Yankees were six outs away from getting another win but wound up with a 6-5 loss when Jonathan Loaisiga allowed four runs in the eighth.
