The Yankees struggled at home this week, and they ended the home stand with their second straight loss against the first-place Rays. Andy Pettitte allowed three of Tampa Bay’s four home runs and took his first loss.
Before the game, the Yankees officially put Jorge Posada on the disabled list and called up the veteran Chad Moeller. They also called up Kevin Russo, got Nick Swisher back in the lineup, sent Mark Melancon back to Triple-A and began openly discussing a possible rehab assignment for Curtis Granderson. Take the good with the bad, I guess.
The Subway Series is next, a three-game series against the Mets at Citi Field.
