GIF of the Game: Representation of the Yankees' offense

USA TODAY Sports

Two hits+ one run = No effect!

The New York Yankees faced the Rays' young lefty Matt Moore today with a lineup that featured Ben Francisco second and Francisco Cervelli fifth. It was an already-poor lineup made worse by the late scratch of Kevin Youkilis. Moore was masterful in eight innings, allowing just one run on two hits. Perhaps unsurprisingly, both of these hits came off the bat of Robinson Cano. He belted a monster solo homer in the fourth and beat out an infield single in the seventh when first baseman Sean Rodriguez could not handle a throw from deep shortstop by Yunel Escobar.

That was it for the Yankees' offense aside from three walks (two to Brett Gardner, one to Eduardo Nunez). While the Yankees struggled to reach base, the Rays scorched CC Sabathia for four runs in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back.

Thus was life for the Yankees and their offense today:
