The Yankees started all but two of their regulars tonight, but a complete game by James Shields left them with a 5-2 loss at Tropicana Field. Aside from Robinson Cano — who had a solo home run and an RBI single — the Yankees had just four hits. Whether they wanted to or not, the Yankees might have helped to wipe out the Red Sox wild card lead. If the Orioles hang on to beat Boston, the Rays will have pulled even heading into the final two games of the season.
