Rays designated hitter Dan Johnson does two things well: He works the count and he hits for power. Tonight, Johnson took advantage of two fastball counts and hit a pair of home runs, carrying the Rays to a 4-3 win that dumped the Yankees back into second place in the American League East. Phil Hughes pitched well most of the night, but mistakes to Johnson cost him in the Yankees latest tough-to-swallow loss of the road trip.
