ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — At the risk of lowering my standards here, the New York Yankees did what they had to do and took two out of three in their series at the Tampa Bay Rays. Yes, you’d love for your ace to lay down the hammer with an opportunity to sweep. Yet, it was a nice bounce-back response to the debacle weekend in Boston.
The Yankees stayed one step ahead of the Rays all evening. On a night where Gumby started, the bullpen was bend but don’t break in a 4-3 victory.
