The Yankee offense finally scored more than two runs against the Rays. They scored three today, which isn't anything to write home about but if the opposing team scores less than you do it's an accomplishment. Robinson Cano continues to stay hot at the plate with a home run and an RBI double early in the game against Alex Cobb who lasted six innings due to an elevated pitch count. The Yankees didn't score again until the eleventh inning when Alfonso Soriano doubled with one out then stole third base, which took a lot of guts. Granderson then drove him in as the go-ahead run when he lifted a sac fly. The run then made way for Rivera to try and save his last ever regular season game at Tropicana Field. The middle of the Rays lineup went down 1-2-3 and Rivera earned his 38th save of the season.
The Yankees are looking forward to their next three games against the Toronto Blue Jays above the border. The Jays snapped their seven game skid today against the Astros but the Yankees have had their numbers all season long. After a rough series in Tampa a few games in Toronto will be just what the doctor ordered. Derek Jeter will make yet another debut tomorrow night as he is expected to join the team in Toronto for the three game series before heading home for a tough home stand.
