Yankees Vs. Rays: Rays Get Even In Ninth, Still Tied After 11

We’re all tied up in Tampa Bay.

After trailing 7-0 at one point during the game, the Rays rallied for six runs in the eighth inning, and then with two outs in the ninth and the bases empty, pinch hitter Dan Johnson crushed a 2-2 fastball into the right field bleachers to tie the game and send the crowd at Tropicana Field into a frenzy.

In the 10th, both teams were able to get a runner aboard via a walk, but were unable to advance the runners thanks to some strong performances on the mound by Kyle Farnsworth (Tampa) and Scott Proctor (New York).

In the 11th, the Yankees went 1-2-3, but the Rays had runners at first and second with one out and were unable to push across the winning run.

The Rays need to win this game in order to guarantee themselves at least a tie for the Wild Card. In the event of a tie, a one game playoff would decide the winner of the final playoff spot. That game would be Thursday afternoon at 4pm.
