In Progess: Rays Erase Yankees' Lead With Four-Run Sixth Inning

Like they’ve done so many times this season, the Tampa Bay Rays have battled back from a deficit. In the opening game of a pivotal four-game set with the New York Yankees, the Rays find themselves tied at 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth inning. Thirty minutes or so ago, things weren’t looking so good. The Yanks, leading 2-0, loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the fifth. Matt Garza allowed two to score, but all things considered, things could have been worse. Then, in their next at-bat, the Rays stormed back with four runs to level the score at 4-4. Exciting first game of what promises to be an up-and-down, thrilling series.
