◼️ The ninth of Florida won 7-6 after a tight ninth in which he had to defend his advantage. Gary Sanchez did not have his best night.
In an even, exciting match that narrowly missed extra innings, the Rays beat the Yankees 7-6 at home and managed to get one step closer to the ninth in New York in the dispute for second place in the Eastern Division of the American League. The man of the night: Jake Bauers, who not only contributed to the defense but with the bat passed twice at home to contribute his little grain of sand.
Luis Severino had a gray night from the mound by allowing seven scores (the most so far this season) and 11 hits in just over five innings. Of course, despite the defeat, he added eight strikeouts to reach a total of 504 entering the club of players under 25 years wearing the shirt of the Yankees have passed the barrier of 500.
On the side of the locals also shone Willy Adames and the Venezuelan Jesus Sucre, who this time could not score, but contributed by driving a couple of races. And his work was also seen with the glove, even more at the time when the visitor had the bases full, in the upper part of the ninth, and when everything painted to lengthen. However, a great play on defense left out Sanchez delivering the out for the victory.
