Yankees @ Rays 9/3/12

Alex Rodriguez is back ladies and gentleman and will be our DH today. Granderson is ok to come back but they want to give him the DH spot on the turf and that goes to ARod so he will be out again today. Let's see if the "A Rod effect" holds water.

Yankees down 1-0 after 2 IP
Eric Chavez RBI Sac fly and Raul Ibanez triple ties the game at 2-2!!!
Russell Martin infield single off the pitcher scores Ibanez to give the Yankees a 3-2 lead
We're tied at 3 after 5 IP
Yankees lose 4-3


The Yankees AL East lead is shrinking by the day so let's not beat around the bush, we need to win and we need to win NOW. CC Sabathia is on the mound so this is as close to a must win as you are going to get for the Yankees here on labor day but he will be facing off against big game James Shields as we begin a three game series with the Tampa Bay Rays. The game will be televised on MLB Network at 1:05 pm ET and on the YES Network. Happy Labor Day everyone!!
