Yankees Vs. Rays Final Score: David Price's Start Wasted As Yanks Win 4-3

The Tampa Bay Rays entered Wednesday afternoon looking to sweep the New York Yankees in Tropicana Field, but David Price's excellent start went to waste as Kyle Farnsworth gave up three runs in just 0.1 innings of relief duty. Price had gone seven innings for the Rays, limiting the Yankees to just four hits and striking out eight batters, but it was all for not.

The Rays took what looked like at the time a commanding 3-1 lead on a Carlos Pena two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Enter Farnsworth however, and the Yankees stormed back. Farnsworth walked in the first run and then Robinson Cano picked up a two RBI single in the same inning to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead, which proved enough to steal away the win and avoid the sweep.
