Rays Split With Yankees, Look to Pick up Wins Over Mariners
By Staff Writer: A. Hintz
The Tampa Bay Rays faced the New York Yankees, an AL East division rival, at a crucial time in baseball. The four-game series came just a week and a half after they played the New York Yankees at New Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and split the series with one make up game.
The Rays lost the first game 4-5, but managed to climb back and rebound with a win over the Bronx Bombers 3-2 the following day. The see-saw effect continued throughout the series as the Yankees topped the Rays on Wednesday 0-4 and the Rays beating the Yankees in the final game of the series 2-1. While the Tampa Bay Rays would have preferred a series win, a split at least keeps the rays within striking distance of the Yankees!
With the Rays running out of time to take the lead in the AL East, the upcoming August series against the struggling Seattle Mariners could reduce the Rays' deficit. The three-game series taking place on August 19-21 is looking more and more optimistic as the Mariners have a record-breaking losing streak under their belt.
