Alex Rodriguez has issues batting against lefthanded pitchers, which makes no baseball sense since he is a rightanded hitter. 

This season, A-Rod hit just  .217 with six homers and 35 runs bated in vs. leftfies, while he batted .290 with 24 homers and 90 RBIs against righties. Clearly, he does not see the ball as well when it comes from a lefthander.

A-Rod is 1-for-9 with four strikeouts against Francisco Liriano, the Twins' starter in Game 1.
