Problem #1: 2 extra-base hits in this series. Nobody's hitting for any sort of power right now and it's damned hard to score runs stringing singles and walks together.
April: 96 XBH, 149 runs
May: 66 XBH, 100 runs
This team needs to get back to acquiring more bases if it wants to resume scoring runs.
