The New York Yankees lose another one as their season slips away



The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.  The game took place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida and the final score was 6-1.  Michael Pineda started and was pretty good.  The offense as usual didn't do much of anything and the bullpen wasn't great.

Jake Odorizzi won his 11th game of the season pitching six innings and giving up five hits and a run.  Brandon Gomes pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit, Jeff Beliveau pitched to one batter and retired him and Steve Geitz hit a batter and then was taken out after a lot of shouting took place.  C.J.

Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit, Chase Headley had a hit and Chris Young had a hit.  Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and an RBI, Francisco Cervelli had two hits and John Ryan Murphy drew a walk.  Brendan Ryan had a hit and drew a walk, Young hit a double and the Yankees were 1-10 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Antoan Richardson had a stolen base and Ryan and Pineda each committed an error.
