After carrying a seven-run lead into the eighth inning, the Yankees couldn’t finish the regular season with a win. The Rays walked off with an 8-7 win at Tropicana Field, eliminating the Red Sox from the postseason just minutes after the Red Sox blew a ninth-inning lead in Baltimore. The Yankees were up 7-0 — Mark Teixeira had homered twice, including a grand slam — but Luis Ayala and Boone Logan allowed six runs in the eighth, Cory Wade gave up a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth and the Rays won it on XXX.
