Rays Work Colon & Yanks For 5-1 Win
Bartolo Colon has run out of steam since his return. He gives up 5 runs last night as Tampa Bay beats New York.
It has been a rough last 5 games for the New York Yankees. They have lost 4 of those 5 games including last nights 5-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Bartolo Colon wasn’t pitching like his usual self. He last just over 5 innings and gives up all 5 runs including 2 Tampa Bay Homers.
That loss, combined with a Boston win, puts the Yankees a half game out of first place now. The bats just weren’t working for the Yankees last night. They notch only 6 hits total, 2 of those belonging to Robinson Cano, including a home run. Derek Jeter would also get a hit last night. He knocked a double early to get within 2 hits of the 3,000 mark.
The Rays on the other hand thrived last night. Ben Zobrist and BJ Upton led the team with 2 homers. Upton had 3 RBI’s. Along with Zobrist and Upton, 3 other Rays had multi-hit games last night. Rays pitching was on last night as well. Besides a couple hits, Jeff Niemann lasted over 7 innings.
The Yankees will finish up the first part of the regular season against Tampa Bay. That continues tonight at 7p with Freddy Garcia on the mound.
