So far this season, Richmond has struggled against left-handed batters. Righties are hitting him for a .172 batting average and an OPS of .419, while lefties have a .304 BA and a 1.020 OPS.
So Richmond dominates righties and gets shelled by lefties. Facing most teams, this is not too much of a problem.The lefties hit Scott, then he works out of trouble by slamming the door on the righties.
The Yankees are a different story.
As MLBastian tweeted: “Yanks had 7 LH hitters (4 switch) in the lineup vs. Richmond tonight. They combined to go 7-10 with 2 2B, 2 3B, 1 HR against him.”
How many lineups can throw seven lefties at you?
