New lineup, same result

A new batting order made absolutely no difference for the Yankees tonight. With Mark Teixeira dropped to seventh, the lineup still went 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position and lost to the Royals 6-0 in a game nearly identical to other game the Yankees have played the past week and a half. With no outs and the bases loaded in the third, the heart of the order couldn’t drive in a run while Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez struck out and Raul Ibanez just missed a grand slam. Teixeira went 1-for-4 and left a runner at third base with an inning-ending strikeout in the sixth. Hiroki Kuroda allowed three runs through 5.1 innings, and his record slipped to 3-6.
