Even during the Yankees' 10-game winning streak, their season-long troubles with runners in scoring position remained a problem. That issue was the primary culprit in the end of the streak, as the Braves dealt the Yankees a 4-3 loss Tuesday night, handing the Bombers their first setback since June 7. The Yankees were 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position, although only one of the hits scored a run as Jason Heyward threw out Mark Teixeira at the plate in the fifth, one of two baserunners to be nailed at home. "I don't get too caught up in it," Joe Girardi said of the RISP situation. "I thought our at-bats were pretty good. They pitched and played really good defense, and that's kind of what we've been doing."
