The Yankees Win As The Offense Comes Alive

In a season unlike any in recent memory, it was another no-name Yankee who stole the show. Tonight it was Zoilo Almonte, the recently called up left fielder, who helped lift the Yanks to a 6-2 victory.

Almonte had three hits, including his first career home run, as the Yankee bats finally came alive. Ichiro, Cano, Overbay and Adams all added RBIs to the mix, spreading the scoring out over five innings. The offensive outpouring came after manager Joe Girardi front-loaded his line-up in an attempt to generate more production. Gardner, Ichiro, Cano and Hafner were slotted into the top of the order, and they all responded well, with each getting a hit and either driving in or scoring a run.

David Phelps got the win after struggling through 5.2 innings of two run ball. Four pitchers, including David Robertson and Mariano Rivera, combined to throw the remaining 4.1 innings of scoreless ball in relief.

Roberto Hernandez took the loss for the Rays after surrendering five runs over seven innings.
