Soriano's walk-off single lifts Yankees to 6-5 win over Rays

Despite Phil Hughes giving up 5 runs in just four innings of work, the Yankees were able to come back after blowing a big lead to beat the Rays and avoid being swept in this weekend series, 6-5. The Yankees took an early 3-0 lead in the first inning of this one, after Derek Jeter homered on his first pitch back, Vernon Wells drove in a run on a sac fly, and Ichiro hit an RBI Single. 

But that lead would be pretty short lived, as Hughes would give up an RBI Double to Kelly Johnson in the second and a three run home run to Will Meyers in the third to make it 4-3 Rays. But then their lead would be short lived, as Alfonso Soriano, who's first inning single was his first hit since re-joining the Yankees, hit a two-run home run to right field that just cleared the wall to give the Bombers back the lead. Finally, in the bottom of the ninth, Soriano would win the game for New York with a walk-off single. On the day, Soriano was a great, 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBIs. Easily the player of the game.
