2019 Regular Season
As of September 29th, the Yankees have scored 967 runs this season. They are on pace to score over 1,000 runs for the sixth consecutive season. The last time they did not score 1,000 runs in a season was 2012, when they scored 955.
Yankees vs. Red Sox
The New York Yankees have scored 958 runs this season, the most in MLB. The Boston Red Sox are second with 936 runs.
Yankees vs. Astros
The New York Yankees are currently in first place in the American League East with a record of 91-71. They are 7.5 games ahead of the second place Tampa Bay Rays and have clinched a spot in the 2019 postseason. The Astros are in first place in the American League West with a record of 107-55. They have clinched their division and have the best record in baseball.
The Yankees and Astros met seven times during the regular season, with the Astros winning five of those games. The Yankees scored a total of 33 runs in those seven games, an average of 4.7 per game. The Astros scored 47 runs against the Yankees, an average of 6.7 per game.
In their most recent meeting, which took place on September 20th at Minute Maid Park, the Astros beat the Yankees 9-1. The Yankees only managed to score one run off of Astros starter Justin Verlander, who pitched seven innings and gave up just four hits while striking out 11 batters. Gary Sanchez was the only Yankee to drive in a run, as he hit a solo home run off Verlander in the sixth inning.
Yankees vs. Indians
In 2019, the Yankees have scored 1,265 runs in 160 games. The Indians have scored 1,097 runs in 159 games.
The New York Yankees have scored 7 runs in the postseason so far. They have played in 3 games and have a run differential of +4.
Yankees vs. Twins
In the American League playoffs, the Yankees will face the Twins. The Bombers have scored more runs than any team in baseball this season, but they will be up against a tough opponent in Minnesota. The Twins have a strong pitching staff that includes ace Jose Berrios, and they also hit a lot of home runs.
In the past, the Yankees have had trouble scoring runs against good pitching teams in the playoffs. In order to win this series, they will need to find a way to score against the Twins’ pitchers.
The key for the Yankees will be to get runners on base and then drive them in with extra-base hits. If they can do that, they should be able to score enough runs to win the series.
Yankees vs. Rays
In the American League Division Series, the New York Yankees will face off against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have been one of the best teams in baseball this year, but the Yankees have been even better. Here are some numbers to consider as you make your predictions for this series.
The Yankees have scored runs in bunches all season long. They led the majors in runs scored, averaging over 5.5 runs per game. They also hit a lot of home runs, belting 266 of them on the year. On the other side of things, the Rays were no slouches offensively either. They ranked 4th in baseball in runs scored, averaging nearly 5 per game. However, they didn’t hit nearly as many home runs as the Yankees did, finishing with just 157 on the year.
When it comes to pitching, both teams were excellent this season. The Rays had the best ERA in baseball, while the Yankees weren’t far behind, ranking 4th in MLB. The two teams also allowed a similar number of home runs this season, with the Rays giving up 158 and the Yankees giving up 162.
One big advantage that the Yankees have in this series is experience. They’ve been to the playoffs numerous times in recent years and have won a World Series title within the last 10 years. The Rays haven’t been to the playoffs since 2013 and haven’t won a World Series since 2008.
The New York Yankees have scored the most runs in baseball this year. They are currently in the World Series and are looking to continue their dominance. However, the Houston Astros have a strong pitching staff that could shut down the Yankees offense. It will be a close series, but the Yankees have the edge.
Yankees vs. Nationals
In Game 1 of the World Series, the Yankees lost to the Nationals, 6-2. The Nationals took an early lead in the game and never looked back, as they held on to win despite a late push by the Yankees.
The loss was a tough one for the Yankees, as they had been one of the best teams in baseball all season long. However, they will have to regroup and try to even the series in Game 2, which will be played tomorrow night.
