The Yankees’ run at an American League postseason spot stalled on Sunday, at least for a day. Tampa Bay homered three times to snap New York’s seven-game win streak with a 4-2 victory in the Bronx in front of 33,087 at Yankee Stadium.
Corey Dickerson opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the second, and Logan Forsythe and Brad Miller added solo shots in the sixth off Luis Cessa, who suffered his first Major League loss.
The Yankees are now two games back of an AL Wild Card spot, tied with the Tigers and trailing the Blue Jays and the Orioles, who have both AL spots with identical records. New York trails Boston by four games in the AL East.
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Now they host the Los Angeles Dodgers for three games and, well, the Los Angeles Dodgers are not the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees even get to play against Clayton Kershaw. Blech.
Oh well, hopefully they’ll still surprise us! Even if they don’t pull out of a postseason spot, this last month and a half has been an absolute blast regardless!
