The New York Yankees win in dramatic fashion to take the series from the Tampa Bay Rays

The New York Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 5-4.  Michael Pineda started and was ok, the bullpen was good and Chris Young led the offense. 

Pineda pitched 7 1/3 innings giving up ten hits and four runs with no walks and two strikeouts.  Rich Hill pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a walk and two strikeouts, Roe walked his only batter and Josh Outman retired the only batter that he faced.  Shawn Kelley won his third game of the season pitching 2/3 of an inning. 

Alex Cobb pitched 7 1/3 innings giving up a hit and a run with two walks and four strikeouts.  Brad Boxberger pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run with two strikeouts and Jake McGee pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up two hits and three runs with a strikeout and he blew his third save and lost his second game of the season. 

Brian McCann drew a walk, Mark Teixeira drew a walk and Ichiro Suzuki had a hit.  Young had two hits and three RBI and Martin Prado had a hit and two RBI.  Young and Suzuki each hit a double and Prado and Young each hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 2-9 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  McCann had a passed ball and Suzuki had an outfield assist. 

David DeJesus had two hits, James Loney had a hit and Wil Myers had two hits and drew a walk.  Matt Joyce had two hits, Yunel Escobar had three hits, four RBI and drew a walk and DeJesus hit a double.  Escobar hit a homerun and the Rays were 2-10 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Kiermaier and Loney each committed an error. 

In the fourth Escobar hit a three run homerun to give the Rays a 3-0 lead.  Escobar hit a solo homerun in the seventh to make it 4-0.  The Yankees broke up a no hitter in the eighth  inning on a Young double and then Prado hit a two run homerun to make it 4-2.  In the ninth Young hit a three run walk-off homerun to give the Yankees an improbable 5-4 win.  They took two out of three in the series and now head to Baltimore for a four game series on Friday.  They will play a day/night doubleheader on Friday.
