Yanks Get One Back From Rays

The Yankees topped Tampa Bay in game two of a three-game series 4-2.  What seemed like a potential Rays sweep after game one and Matt Moore’s dominating performance while CC Sabathia struggled could now be a Yankees series win, their fifth straight.

The great:  Ichiro Suzuki.  Ichiro’s legs helped tie the game in the 8th and his 9th inning two-run single gave New York a 4-2 lead.  He’s starting to come around.

The good:  Phil Hughes.  Rocky start.  Strong finish.  Hughes lasted 7 innings for the second straight time and allowed just two runs but no home runs.  Repeat, NO HOME RUNS ALLOWED BY PHIL HUGHES.

Simply Mo:  Mariano Rivera recorded his 6th save of the season.  He was lights out save for a leadoff home run by Evan Longoria.  Rivera now has 614 career saves.  Remarkable.

New York sends 3-0 Andy Pettitte to the mound on Wednesday night against Alex Cobb (2-1) of the Rays.
