LEADING OFF: Yankees, Cards slumping, all eyes on Philly net

Slumping DJ LeMahieu and the skidding Yankees hope to get back on target when they start a set at Target Field against the Twins on Tuesday night. New York has lost four in a row, coming off a weekend sweep by Boston at Yankee Stadium, and is fourth in the AL East. The Yankees rank near the bottom of the majors in scoring, and have averaged barely 2 1/2 runs per game over the past two weeks. Often dependent on power, they’re below the AL average in home runs and have hurt themselves on the bases all season, often running into outs.
