Yankees rally to beat Price and the Rays

With their depleted lineup, the Yankees seem ill-equipped for a game like Tuesday. But a lineup that has struggled mightily against left-handers managed to outlast David Price and rally for a 4-3 win against the Rays. With the game tied at 2, Robinson Cano chased Price from the game with a leadoff single in the ninth, and Ichiro Suzuki delivered the win with a two-out, two-run, bases-loaded single later in the inning. Dave Robertson got the win, and Mariano Rivera picked up the save despite a solo home run. But the game really belonged to starter Phil Hughes, who settled in after sluggish first inning to duel with Price and give the Yankees a chance. Hughes’ night started with a 32-pitch first inning. There was a leadoff walk, a double, and a sacrifice fly, but Hughes settled in and the lineup came back. Eduardo Nunez started the fourth inning with a strikeout/wild pitch. He went first to third on a Cano single, then scored on a Vernon Wells single. When the Rays scored again in the seventh, the Yankees again responded with a pair of singles and a run-scoring ground ball to second. Hughes ultimately went seven innings allowing two runs on six hits, two walks and six strikeouts.
