Cano, Soriano help Yankees salvage finale from Rays, 3-2

Thanks to 6.2 innings of two-run ball from Ivan Nova, a home run and an RBI Double from Robinson Cano, and a 2-for-5 day from Alfonso Soriano, the Yankees were able to win a game in extra innings today over the Rays, 3-2, avoiding a sweep in this three-game set. Now this game did not have a ton of offense, but it was still very entertaining. 

With the game tied at two in the top of the eleventh inning, Alfonso Soriano hit a one-out double, stole third, and scored the go-ahead run after Curtis Granderson flew out to deep center field. That inning was exciting, but this win, in my opinion, was still tainted. You can't win every series, but it'd be nice if they had won this one. There's just something about St. Pete that this team must not like because they never win at Tropicana Field.
