The New York Yankees lose fourth in a row to drop to 500

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 2-1.  Hiroki Kuroda started for the Yankees and pitched very well, their offense as has been the norm this season didn't do much at all. 

Kuroda pitched eight innings giving up nine hits and two runs with a walk and seven strikeouts and lost his sixth game of the season.  David Huff pitched an inning striking out two. 

David Price won his seventh game of the season pitching four hits and a run with three walks and nine strikeouts.  Jake McGee pitched an inning with a strikeout, Grant Balfour pitched an inning walking two and striking out one and saving his 11th game of the season. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Derek Jeter had two hits and Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit.  Mark Teixeira drew a walk, Carlos Beltran drew a walk.  Kelly Johnson drew a walk and Yangervis Solarte had a hit and drew a walk.  Jeter hit a double and the Yankees were 1-9 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Ellsbury and Jeter each had a stolen base. 

Desmond Jennings had two hits, Ben Zobrist drew a walk and Matt Joyce had a hit.  Evan Longoria had two hits, James Loney had two hits and an RBI and Logan Forsythe had two hits and an RBI.  Jennings hit a double and Loney hit a homerun.  The Rays were 1-8 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Zobrist committed an error. 

In the fourth Forsythe hit an RBI single to give the Rays a 1-0 lead.  The Yankees tied the game in the fourth on a throwing error.  The Rays took a 2-1 lead in the sixth on a Loney solo homerun and that would be the final score.  The Yankees have now lost four in a row and will try and avoid the sweep on Wednesday afternoon.
