Bizarre seventh dooms Yankees

Bartolo Colon returned to form tonight, but a strange inning in a strange ballpark left the Yankees with a 3-2 loss to the Rays. Colon struck out a season-high nine and left with a one-run lead in the seventh. Immediately after Colon walked off the mound, the Rays scored two runs on a lost fly ball, a high chopper off Boone Logan’s glove and a shallow fly ball that left Curtis Granderson no time to make a strong throw home. Russell Martin nearly tied the game with two outs in the ninth, but his deep fly ball was caught at the wall for the final out.
