The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.  The game took place at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida and the final score was 4-2.  David Hale started for the Yankees and he pitched well, the relivers did as well except for Adam Warren who had a rough game.  Aaron Judge and Ronald Torreyes each had two hits to lead the offense. 

Hale pitched three innings giving up a hit and no runs with a walk and five strikeouts.  Tommy Khanle pitched two innings giving up a walk, Chad Green pitched a perfect inning and Dellin Betances pitched two perfect innings with four strikeouts.  Warren took the loss pitching 2/3 of an inning and giving up five hits and four runs and Chasen Shreve pitched to one batter and struck him out. 

Brett Gardner drew two walks, Judge had two hits and drew a walk and Aaron Hicks drew two walks.  Didi Gregorius had a hit and drew a walk, Tyler Austin had a hit and Austin Romine had an RBI.  Billy McKinney drew a walk, Torreyes had two hits and an RBI and Judge hit a double.  The Yankees were 1-9 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base.  Judge had a stolen base. 

In the second Torreyes hit an RBI single giving the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the sixth Romine hit a sac fly to push the lead to 2-0.  In the ninth David Rodriguez hit a three-run homerun and Carlos Gomez hit a solo homerun to give the Rays a 4-2 lead and that would be the final score.
