New York Yankees lose game and also lose Brendan Ryan to injury

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays by the score of 3-0.  The game took place at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.  Chase Whitley started and pitched very well, probably locking up a bullpen spot.  The Yankees offense didn't do much but Carlos Beltran, Brett Gardner  and Mark Teixeira each had a hit. 

Whitley pitched four innings giving up four hits and a run with no walks and six strikeouts.  Whitley took his first loss of the spring.  Esmil Rogers pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up two hits and an unearned run with a walk and three strikeouts, Chasen Shreve pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and an unearned run with a strikeout and Andrew Bailey pitched an inning giving up a hit and a walk with a strikeout.  Nick Rumbelow pitched two innings giving up a walk and striking out three batters. 

Gardner had a hit, Beltran had a hit and Ramon Flores had a hit.  Teixeira had a hit, John Ryan Murphy drew a walk and Chase Headley drew a walk.  Alex Rodriguez drew a walk, Ryan drew a walk and the Yankees were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.  Ryan committed an error and Flores had an outfield assist. 

In the second James Loney hit an RBI single giving the Rays a 1-0 lead.  In the sixth Kevin Kiermaier reached on a fielding error and two runs scored.  The score was 3-0 and that was the final score.  The Yankees will play a split squad on Thursday afternoon.  They will be at home in Tampa against the Pittsburgh Pirates and on the road in Lakeland against the Detroit Tigers.
