Rays bully Yankees in the Bronx

The best team in baseball showed why they were the best team in baseball in a 10-6 win over the Yankees (it wasn’t as close as the score makes it look).

The Rays pitched great (except Andy Sonnanstine), hit great and ran great. That’s tough to beat, and it seems that’s the way they play every night.

Best of all: Robinson Cano had four hits. And… that’s about it for the good stuff.

Worst of all: The Rays stole six bases off the A.J. Burnett-Francisco Cervelli battery. Six! AND, Ben Zobrist scored from second on a sac fly in the eighth. Granted, it was a diving catch near the wall in center field by Brett Gardner, but still, Zobrist scored standing up.

Even worse: Marcus Thames left in the sixth inning after spraining his ankle by stepping on his own bat after singling. Boy, with the injuries piling up like pancakes, that’s pretty embarrassing.

Line of the night: Cano: 4-for-5, 2B, RBI. He’s back up to .340.

Up Next: My parents and I are meeting up with Andrew Fletcher at Thursday night’s game. Hopefully Andy Pettitte can continue the best start of his career.
