New York Yankees are shutout by the Tampa Bay Rays

 The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.  The game took place

at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida and the final score was 1-0.  Masahiro Tanaka started for

the Yankees and pitched great.  The bullpen pitched well and the offense didn't do anything.  

Tanaka pitched five innings giving up a hit and no runs with no walks and five strikeouts.  Luis Cessa

pitched two innings giving up a hit and he struck out two and Adam Ottavino lost his first game of the 

season pitching an inning giving up a run and two walks with a strikeout.  

Blake Snell pitched three hitless and scoreless innings.  He walked two and struck out five.  Andrew

Kittredge pitched two perfect innings, Pete Fairbanks pitched an inning giving up a hit and he struck out

one, Diego Castillo pitched 1/3 of an inning walking two and Nick Anderson pitched 2/3 of an inning

walking one and striking out one.  Chaz Roe won his second game of the season pitching two innings

giving up a hit and he struck out two.  

DJ LeMahieu had a hit and drew a walk, Aaron Hicks drew a walk and Giancarlo Stanton drew a walk.

Gio Urshela drew a walk, Gary Sanchez drew a walk and Mike Tauchman had a hit.  Tauchman hit a 

double and the Yankees were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  

Yandy Diaz had a hit, Yoshi Tsutsugo drew a walk and Kevin Kiermaier had a hit and drew a walk.

Michael Perez had an RBI, Kiermaier hit a double and the Rays were 0-4 with runners in scoring 

position and left three men on base.  

In the eighth Perez hit a sac fly to give the Rays a 1-0 lead and that was the final score.  The two
