Rays Blowout Yankees

It was billed as a pitcher’s duel, but only one kept up his end of the bargain.

Looking to sweep the Rays, the Yanks sent ace, C.C. Sabathia to the mound on Sunday.  Nothing much went well after that, as the Yankees’ great lefty was roughed up, giving up seven runs in as many innings, while the offense was dominated by Tampa Bay’s Alex Cobb.  The righty pitched 8.1 innings, gave up only two runs, surrendered only five hits, struck out eight, and walked no one.

A Brett Gardner home run started a mild Yankees rally in the ninth, but they fell well short of the Rays, losing 8-3.  David Huff made his first appearance as a Yankee in relief of Sabathia, pitching one inning and giving up one run.

On Monday, the Yankees will play the first of four straight against the rival Mets – the first two from Citi Field, the final two from Yankee Stadium.  Coverage of the game begins at 6:15 on 104.5 The Team.
