Yankees Vs. Rays: Yanks Cruising 7-0 Through Six Innings

Through six complete innings, the New York Yankees are on cruise control thanks to a Mark Teixeira grand slam back in the second inning and a strong group pitching performance from a platoon of relievers.

The Rays came into the game tonight hoping to swipe the Wild Card out from underneath the Red Sox tonight, but after surrendering five early runs, the only thing the Rays can do is hope for help from Baltimore.

The Rays have just two hits in the game through six innings (two ingles from catcher Casey Kotchman) and only seven base runners, none of whom has reached third base.

Rays starter David Price is on the hook for the loss after struggling with his control and surrendering six runs (five earned) in four innings of work. Reliever Juan Cruz gave up a home run in the fifth inning to account for the other New York run thus far.
