The most knowledgable yankee fans i know predicted it to a tee. They havent scored a run in the first 8 innings of any game this series. Its a shame considering how well the yankees rotation has pitched.
Our pitchers have given up more than 3 runs in a game just once this post season out of the 8 games played and our offense has scored more than 3 runs twice, it has been horrible for the pitchers to not get even 3 runs of support after pitching exceptionally well

I don't think anybody expected the Yankee offense to be this bad though, 5 starters aren't hitting over .175, 7 HR's total - 3 of which came from a guy off the bench
