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 6-3.

Branden Pinder pitched 2/3 of an inning walking one and struck out two, Bryan Mitchell pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up three hits and two runs with a walk and a strikeout and Chris Martin retired the only batter that he faced.
