• Yankees drop another, division lead disappears

    The New York Yankees will never win a game again. Okay, that’s not true. They’ll win another game at some point (maybe even this season!), but it sure doesn’t feel like this team can buy a win right now. Tonight started out well enough with a home run by Robinson Cano in the very first inning but, wouldn’t ya know it, that would be the extent of the Yankees’ offense, and two runs just ain’t going to cut it with Freddy Garcia on the mound. Tampa Bay knocked Garcia around in the middle of his outing for five runs, and wound up winning the game from the Yankees by a score of 5-2. Worse still, the Orioles demolished Toronto, so the night ends with the Yanks and O’s in a dead even tie for first place in the A.L. East. Let’s try to grind out a recap, shall we?
