Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees

  • Beginning Monday the Yankees will play a very important series against the Rays as the road team at Citi Field

Matt Holliday's 2-out RBI double gets the @Yankees on the board first! The Rays dropped four games behind the Twins with 17 remaining.

In the start of a series moved from Florida to Citi Field because of Hurricane Irma, Todd Frazier capitalized on Trevor Plouffe's two-out error with a three-run homer in a five-run fourth inning that led the New York Yankees over the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Monday night.

Rays left-hander Blake Snell allowed just two hits in five-plus innings before giving way to a cadre of relievers that matched Yankees starter Sonny Gray pitch for pitch until Hechavarria's homer.

The Yankees (78-66) had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The shooting sparked outrage in Minnesota and Australia and triggered the resignation of the Minneapolis police chief. One of the two responding officers, Mohamed Noor, fired at her as she approached the squad vehicle he was riding in.


In an attempt to stay sharp, Garcia threw a four-inning simulated game last Friday prior to the Yankees' game against the Texas Rangers.

Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set held at the home of the New York Mets.

The Yankees finally got a fourth outfielder back when Clint Frazier was activated from the disabled list on Monday and the left fielder made his first appearance since being sidelined with a left oblique strain on August 9.

Rays left fielder Corey Dickerson just missed making a shoestring catch after running a few steps on Holliday's liner, and when the ball got past him and rolled to the wall, Judge scored easily. He was 0-for-2 with two hard-hit flyouts before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

He declined to say whether he'd accept a nuclear-armed North Korea that can be successfully deterred from using atomic weapons. The White House stressed the USA and Chinese leaders' joint commitment to ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.


"Given how their lineup was shaped with (Aaron) Judge, (Gary) Sanchez, (Matt) Holliday, (Starlin) Castro, I felt like that was the ideal time to kind of bring in our right-handed weapon against their guys", Cash said. His K season total is up to 193, six behind the Major League record for a rookie, 199 by Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs in 2015.

In the third, he lined out to deep center. Playing first base, he was 1-for-3. Yankees 1B Greg Bird (back) missed a second straight game. He was scratched Monday, felt better Tuesday and hoped to play Wednesday.

The Yankees conclude their series against the Rays at Citi Field Wednesday in a weekday matinee at 1:10 PM.

On the mound for NY will be Jaime Garcia (5-9, 4.43 ERA), while Tampa Bay turns to Chris Archer (9-9, 4.00). TBA vs. RHP Masahiro Tanaka (11-11, 4.82).
