A four-run lead was not enough tonight. The Yankees keep losing, and they keep looking bad doing it. A.J. Burnett gave up five runs in the sixth inning, the last coming on B.J. Upton’s go-ahead two-run home run to send the Rays to a 6-5 win. Curtis Granderson remains the Yankees only bright spot. He hit his 14th home run of the season to put the Yankees in front 5-1 in the fifth, but the Yankees keep finding ways to squander opportunities. They’ve now lost six in a row, their longest losing streak since Joe Girardi became manager.
