After dropping the final game of the series against the Kansas City Royals, the Yankees made their way to Tropicana Field where they faced off against their AL East opponents the Tampa Bay Rays. Unfortunately, the Yankees were once again defeated by the bat of Evan Longoria in a 5-4 loss in Tampa, Florida.
Luis Severino went five innings, giving up one run on five hits while striking out seven. Jonathan Holder pitched a scoreless inning, Adam Warren allowed three runs while retiring two batters, Chasen Shreve retired a batter, and Clippard gave up a run in his inning of work.
— The Yankees need Masahiro Tanaka to bounce back after his last start, as the Yankees attempt to even the series at one game apiece. Matt Andriese will start for the Rays. First pitch is at 4:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
