Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was booed by his home fans on Sunday amid his postseason slump.
The four-time All-Star ended the regular season as one of the hottest hitters in baseball, but he has been the exact opposite in the playoffs.
Over the final nine games of the regular season, Cano was a scorching 24-for-39 (.615) with 11 runs, 7 doubles, three home runs, and 14 RBIs to help the Yankees win the AL East. He went 2-for-8 with two doubles in the first two games of the ALDS against the Orioles, but he’s been on a record-worst streak since then.
Cano double in the first in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Orioles and has gone hitless since then. He’s a postseason record worst 0-for-26. He did have an RBI ground out in Game 4 to give the Yankees their only run that game, but that’s been it.
The slump has been so bad that Yankees fans booed Cano after he grounded out against the Tigers in the eighth during a 3-0 loss in Game 2 of the ALCS.
And here we thought Kansas City was the only time Cano was going to be booed all season. Guess we were wrong.
