Lineup vs. Rays:

The Yankees had gotten everything that they wanted from Freddy Garcia who pitched 5.1 IP of 2 run baseball, but RISP failures and a rare error by Mark Teixeira handed the Yankees their 8th loss in Tropicana Field this season as the Rays defeated the Yankees 4-3.
Fans were worried that Freddy Garcia might have put the game in jeopardy before the game even started but he had pitched very well. He only had given up 2 runs; both on solo HR’s (one to B.J Upton and one to Carlos Pena). He was lifted in the 6th inning for Cody Eppley who had gotten the Yankees out of the inning tied. What looked promising after the Yankees scored another run in the 7th turned horrible when in the bottom half in the inning Boone Logan walked Sean Rodriguez and let him advance to 2nd on a wild pitch. David Robertson gave up the tying run after coming in the game (the run was charged to Logan). Robertson seemed to have gotten the Yankees out of the inning on a ground ball–until Mark Teixeira let the ball skip under his glove all the way down the right field line allowing the 4th and final run to score.
The Yankees scored their 3 runs by playing ABC Baseball. They got 2 runs in the 1st inning on a RBI by Teixeira and a RBI on Robinson Cano. The Yankees scored their 3rd and final run on excellent base running by Chris Stewart which ended with Curtis Granderson hitting a SAC Fly.
The Yankees can take some positives away from the outing. Freddy Garcia pitched well again, Chris Stewart knows how to play ABC Baseball which reminds us of Brett Gardner and Chad Qualls was able to retire both batters he faced after arriving in the visitors clubhouse at 5:30 in the afternoon.
