Before last night's rain-delayed game, the Yankees had won 160 consecutive games when leading after 8 innings. They are now 160-1 in such games, dating back to June 1, 2014. The Rangers beat the Yankees 9-6 in a game that was delayed for 3 hours and 35 minutes. The Yankees had a 6-5 lead going into the 9th inning before play was stopped after Aroldis Chapman walked Robinson Chirinos and had a 3-1 count on Shin-Soo Choo. Rangers scored 4 runs after the game resumed at 2:15 am.

Rougned Odor told me he agreed with Joe Girardi in that he was surprised they were still playing after the 8th inning. Odor added he was also surprised that play was halted in the top of the 9th since they had been playing under the same heavy rain for a few innings.

Rangers outlast rain delay to rally past Yankees (0:58)

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said it was a poor decision to keep playing tonight, called it "dangerous". Said he didn't ask the umpires to stop the game on the top of the 9th.

That's a wrap. At 2:44 a.m. Tuesday, the Yankees lost to the Rangers, 9-6. The game was marred by a three-hour and 35-minute delay in the top of the ninth. When play was stopped, the Yankees were up a run, but, upon resumption, wild reliever Kirby Yates hit three batters and allowed the Rangers to score four runs in the ninth. The game began with a 21-minute delay, even though there was no rain. First pitch was at 7:26 p.m. on Monday. It ended with Jacoby Ellsbury, the tying run at the plate, flying out to left.
