Game 20 : The Yankees took sole possession of first place in the AL East in a well-played, well-pitched showdown with the upstart Tampa Rays. New York used outstanding mound efforts from starter Adam Warren, and the usual suspects from the bullpen to make a few timely hits from the offense stand up for a 4-1 win. The victory also snapped Tampa’s five-game winning streak, and improved New York’s head-to-head record with the Rays to 4-0.
Brian McCann launched a no-doubter halfway up the second tier in right to break a 1-1 tie in the 6th inning. Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Stephen Drew added ribbys.
Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.
