Yankees trailing again

4/8/2012

For the third straight game, the Rays have jumped out ahead of the Yankees in the first inning, scoring a run off Phil Hughes on a double scorched past Alex Rodriguez by Evan Longoria, and a sinking liner to right by Matt Joyce that turned into an RBI triple when Raul Ibanez, starting in rightfield in place of Nick Swisher , made a hesitant attempt at a sliding catch resulting in the ball bounding past him to the wall to give Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead. The good news: Hughes hit 94 on the gun.
