Capuano's Struggles Cancelled Out By Offensive Explosion in 8-5 Win Over Rays

Chris Capuano surrendered four earned runs in a 1/3 of an inning and Jacoby Ellsbury went 0-for-4, but since the bullpen was able to back up the veteran with 26 outs of one-run ball and the Brian McCann/Chris Young duo led a rally throughout the Yankees luckily escaped the Stadium tonight with an 8-5 win over the Rays. 

In his outing this evening, contrary to what he usually does, Capuano labored with each guy he faced, overall letting six of the seven reach base. 

Nonetheless, due to the fun-to-watch endeavors of McCann and the recently-signed Young things eventually turned out alright for the Pinstripes, with McCann taking Jake Odorizzi (4 1/3 IP, 6 ER) deep and connecting on a two-run single early to help Preston Claiborne (2 IP, 0 R) get the W.

No, that pair of hits by the Yanks' catcher didn't force a tie, but after Young homered to left, Mark Teixeira collected an RBI Triple, and Chase Headley got him in with a routine knock in the middle frames their effects were definitely noticeable, with Ichiro and Young also doubling in runs in the bottom of the eighth to somewhat make the contest a laugher.
