The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 5-1.  CC Sabathia started for the Yankees and wasn't very good.  Alfredo Aceves pitched in long relief and was excellent.  Brett Gardner had a couple of hits. 

Sabathia pitched 3 2/3 innings giving up ten hits and five runs.  He walked one and struck out three and lost his fourth game of the season.  Aceves pitched 5 1/3 innings giving up three hits and no runs with five strikeouts. 

Erick Bedard won his first game of the season by pitching six innings.  He gave up six hits and a run with a walk and three strikeouts.  Jake McGee pitched an inning giving up a hit, Joel Peralta pitched an inning with a strikeout and Grant Balfour pitched an inning giving up a walk. 

Mark Teixeira had a hit, Alfonso Soriano had a hit and drew a walk and Kelly Johnson had a hit.  Yangervis Solarte had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Gardner had two hits and John Ryan Murphy had a hit.  Soriano and Johnson each hit a double and the Yankees were 0-10 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. 

Logan Forsythe had two hits, Desmond Jennings had three hits and Evan Longoria had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk.  Wil Myers had two hits and four RBI, Sean Rodriguez had a hit and Yunel Escobar had two hits.  Brandon Guyer had two hits, Forsythe, Longoria, Jennings and Myers each hit a double.  Myers hit a homerun and the Rays were 3-10 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base. 

Longoria hit an RBI double in the first to give the Rays a 1-0 lead.   In the second Solarte hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at one.  Myers hit a three run inside the park homerun in the third inning that gave the Rays a 4-1 lead.  In the fourth Myers hit an RBI double to extend the lead to 5-1 and that would be the final score. 

The Rays took two out of three in the weekend series.  The Yankees finished their homestand at 3-5 and will head to the road on Monday night.  They will be in Anaheim, California to take on the Anaheim Angels in a three game series.
