Yankees Finish April with Fewest Runs in MLB for 1st Time in 32 Years

New York Yankees finished an abysmal first month from the batter's box by ranking last in the majors in runs scored during April for the first time since 1984, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

With just 74 runs, the so-called Bronx Bombers finished with one fewer run than a struggling Atlanta Braves team that had a 5-18 record for the month.

To put this into perspective, the Braves notched just five home runs through the month of April and still managed to outscore New York (22 home runs).

Back in 1984, the Yankees overcame a slow start to rank fourth in the American League with 758 runs. The current squad may thus have some hope, even though it enters Sunday on pace for just 545 runs, with an 8-14 record to boot.
