The Yankees began Tuesday night with a 21-21 record that had them tied with Boston for last in the AL East. It marked the latest point in a season the Yankees have been .500 or worse since June 12, 2008, when they were 33-33.
“We feel we’re a much better club than what we’ve played,” Joe Girardi said. “We’re in last place, but every team in our division is .500 or better.”
...Monday night’s loss dropped the Yanks’ record to 0-10 in games in which they don’t homer. They are the only team in MLB that hasn’t won without hitting a homer ... After Wednesday night’s series finale against the Royals, the Yankees play 15 of their next 21 games on the road.
