The Rays finally got to the Yankees’ eighth and ninth pitchers of the night.
After being held to two hits over seven scoreless innings, the Rays came back with six runs off Boone Logan and Luis Ayala in the bottom of the eighth tonight. Evan Longoria‘s three-run homer was the big blast.
For some reason, Joe Girardi left Ayala in to finish the inning. Except for starter Dellin Betances, who faced nine batters, none of the Yankees’ eight pitchers had faced more than five batters. That is until the terribly ineffective Ayala got to face seven.
Maybe Girardi hates the Red Sox, too.
