Yankees @ Rays 7/3/12

Two Russell Martin errors and some mediocre pitching and the Yankees drop their 9th straight at the Trop.

Tonight the Yankees look to win for the first time in Tropicana Field in their last 9 games played there. The man with that burden on his shoulders is Ivan Nova tonight for the Yankees. Facing Nova, looking to make it a 9 game losing streak at the Trop, is Rays starter James Shields. The game will be televised at 7:10 pm ET on YES and on MLB Network.

The Yankees have promoted outfielder Mason Williams, catcher Gary Sanchez, and RF Tyler Austin to High A Tampa Yankees. Left from the new "core four" is a struggling Dante Bichette Jr who has seen his average come way back down to Earth after a stellar first professional season with the Yankees.

In other news the Yankees promoted  outfielder Rob Segedin, catcher J.R. Murphy, and outfielder Neil Medchill to AA Trenton to make room for these Charleston River Dogs.
