Yankees Lose To Rays; Rubber Game Tommorow

 The Tampa Bay Rays (55-35) defeated the New York Yankees (57-33) by a score of 10-5 on Saturday afternoon. Yankees starter A.J. Burnett exited in the 3rd inning, after cutting both his hands on doors leading to the Yankee clubhouse. Burnett initially lied about the situation, telling Yankees trainer Steve Donahue that he cut his hands catching himself as he tripped on the stairs, later after being pulled, he admitted the truth. A.J. drops to (7-8) on the year.
The Rays offense was lead by second baseman Reid Brignac, who hit two homers and drove in five runs(a career high). Jorge Posada and Mark Teixera homered in the bombers loss.

The loss now puts Tampa only two games back of the first place Yanks. The rubber game is tommorow at 1:05 when David Price(12-4, 2.42) takes on Andy Pettite(11-2, 2.70).
