Yankees Can't Support Gray, Rays Win, 2-1

The Yankees hold the first wild-card at 77-65. Likewise for C.C. Sabathia, who limited the Rays to one run through 4 1/3 laborious innings before handing the game off to a bullpen that pitched 4 2/3 shutout frames to seal the Yankees' 5-1 win. That will be the start of a 10-game homestand. "We're in the backyard of the Yankees, and they draw well at the Trop, so obviously, they're going to draw well in NY".

While there is plenty at stake in the standings - certainly more than on April 15, 1998, when the Yankees hosted Collins' Anaheim Angels at Shea Stadium after a 500-pound beam fell at Yankee Stadium - Odorizzi acknowledged it would be hard to concentrate after the Tampa area was hammered by Hurricane Irma. Lucas Duda, who spent the first seven-plus years of his career with the Mets and scored his new team's only run Monday, was placed in his old locker spot at the back of the room. "We're just praying for them and hopefully everybody comes out safe and sound". "Let's go Yankees" chants were fierce and frequent, and when Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier drilled an Odorizzi slider off the facing of the second deck in left for a three-run home run in the fourth, he got a standing ovation-likely one of the few times that's ever happened for a visiting player at Citi Field or Shea Stadium before it.

Adeiny Hechavarria gets the honor for snapping the 1-1 tie and give the Rays the win.

Sanchez raced home when Matt Holliday's two-out grounder skipped under the glove of Trevor Plouffe for a two-base error. "But I thought the fans were great".

Rays starter Blake Snell allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings.

Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set played at the New York Mets' park.

"I'll do whatever it takes to get us back to the playoffs and get us a chance to get another ring", said Robertson, who was a rookie on the Yankees' most recent championship team in 2009. He flied out to the warning track in right in the eighth.

"Each game is so precious for us", Snell said.

The Rays (71-74) have lost four of five to fall four games behind the Twins in the chase for the second wild card. He didn't play Monday after coming off the disabled list.

Even though the Rays wore home whites, sat in the home dugout, and had their highlights played on the Citi Field video board, their fans were vastly outnumbered by Yankees supporters, who went home happy after a win. He'd been out since August 9 with a strained left oblique strain.
