Yankees Vs. Rays: Price Loses Control Early, Yankees Lead 5-0 After 2

After two innings in Tampa, things are looking up for the Red Sox in their battle for the Wild Card as the Rays surrendered a second inning grand slam off of shaky starter David Price and have a 5-0 lead.

Faced with the gravity of needing to win their game against the New York Yankees, the Tampa Bay Rays looked a little nervous in the first inning after an error and some wild pitching led to an unearned run for the Yankees.

But, after getting the first out in the second inning, Rays pitcher David Price loaded the bases for Mark Teixeira and then was faced with a 3-2 count. Forced to give Tex something to hit, Price left a juicy fastball right over the plate which was promptly deposited into the left center field bleachers.

If the score holds, the Red Sox would be guaranteed at least a tie in the final standings and a one-game playoff tomorrow afternoon in Tampa.
