One home run apiece as Rays edge Yanks, 3-2

Update: Yankees trade for Austin Kearns.

Each team had four hits. Each team scored in one inning. Each team scored on exactly one hit. The difference was that Tampa had two runners on while the Yanks had one.

Derek Jeter led off the game with a single. Nick Swisher followed with a blast to right on the first pitch he saw. The Yankees would not score again.

It took Tampa until the sixth before getting on the board. A single and walk set it up for Matt Joyce who launched a high fastball over the wall in right. That was the final score, 3-2.

Phil Hughes was pretty much cruising until the sixth, and because of one bad pitch took the loss. Wade Davis, on the other hand, got better as the game progressed, allowing just two hits after the first inning.

A-Rod continues to press. He looked to be over-swinging in an 0-4 effort. Last seven games: .207 BA, 2 XBH, 1 BB.

On the bright side, Joba had probably his best outing of the year, throwing two perfect frames.

Play of the Game: ugh (-43%).

Comment of the Game: Kevin L, because everyone needs a hug sometimes.
