Yankees crush Price, Rays in rubber game

The Yankees knocked around All-Star starter David Price for seven runs over five innings to take the series with a 9-5 win. More important than the win, however, was the loss of Andy Pettitte, who left the game in the third with a strained left groin.

Best of All: David Robertson and Chan Ho Park looked sharp in the bullpen, keeping the Yankees in the game early.

Each of the first six hitters had at least one hit and an RBI in the contest — a pretty impressive feat against the Rays’ ace.

Worst of All: Obviously Pettitte was the worst news from today. Other than Pettitte, the only blemish was Jorge Posada’s throwing error. He tried to make a throw like a shortstop on the run, but while wearing catching equipment.

Coming Up: The Yankees get a day off before six more home games this week. The big question is whether or not Alex Rodriguez, who slugged No. 598 today, will be able to slug No. 600 at home.
