The plague definitely kept the hitting down. There was an article a few years ago, I will have to look it up, about hitters in Omaha getting confused and they had something like a 13 inning game going 1-1 before it ended. A game like that is pretty fluky. But the first game, the game they got blown out.. was just dominance. They owned Yankee pitching. They took the bat out of A-Rod's hand with well timed walks. They made the best out of solid defensive stands. I can easily see the Yankees getting swept.
