New York Yankees shutout by the Tampa Bay Rays

 The New York Yankees were defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon.  The game took

place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida and the final score was 4-0.  Domingo German 

started for the Yankees and he didn't pitch very well.  The Yankees offense was non existant.  

German pitched four innings giving up eight hits and four runs with a walk and five strikeouts.  He took

his second loss of the season.  Justin Wilson pitched an inning with a walk and two strikeouts, Jonathan 

Loaisiga pitched two innings giving up two hits and a walk with three strikeouts and Luis Cessa pitched

a perfect inning with two strikeouts.  

Chris Archer pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up three hits and he struck out four for the Rays.  He left the 

game with an injury.  Andrew Kittredge pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up a hit and a walk with a 

strikeout.  He won his second game of the season, Jeffrey Springs pitched two innings giving up a hit

and he struck out three, Ryan Thompson pitched a perfect inning and Cody Reed pitched an inning 

giving up a walk and he struck out one.  Chris Mazza pitched a perfect inning.  

DJ LeMahieu had a hit and drew a walk, Aaron Judge had a hit and Aaron Hicks had a hit and drew a

walk.  Brett Gardner had a hit, Gary Sanchez had a hit and LeMahieu and Gardner each hit a double.

The Yankees were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Sanchez and Urshela

each committed an error.   

Yoshi Tsutsugo had a hit, Austin Meadows had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and Randy Arozarena had

three hits and an RBI.  Yandy Diaz drew a walk, Joey Wendle had two hits and Willy Adames had 

a hit and drew a walk.  Brett Phillips had a hit, Francisco Mejia had a hit and two RBI.  Phillips hit a 

double and Meadows and Arozarena each hit a homerun.  The Rays were 1-7 with runners in scoring 

position and left 11 men on base.  

In the first Meadows hit a solo homerun giving the Rays a 1-0 lead.  In the second Mejia hit a two-run

single pushing the Rays lead to 3-0.  In the third Arozarena hit a solo homerun extending the Rays lead

to 4-0 and that would be the final score.  

The Yankees will try and avoid the three-game sweep on Sunday afternoon.
