after a wild run at the Trop Behind first place Rays

Yingshi. ST.

The ball was not caught when Yandy Díaz charged around the bottom lane, from Bauers gloved and rolled toward the wall. The Yankees’ 5-4 loss to the Rays at Tropicana Stadium on Friday night was a fittingly insane game that capped off an intense first meeting between the two American League East rivals this season.

“That ball has to be caught,” Bowers said. “I can’t read well, I can’t dance well. I can’t recover. If I staged that game, we wouldn’t be in that situation. No reason.”

Díaz ran past catcher Jose Trevino, chose not to coast, and was initially stopped by home plate umpire Dan Merzel. The Yankees celebrated in the visiting dugout, but only briefly — the Rays were going to challenge, and news of the visitor was bad news for manager Aaron Boone, who later commented, “We think he’s safe. “

The Yankees had a chance to fight back in the eighth. DJ LeMahieu hit infield, Kyle Higashioka hit a double to set up runners at second and third, and Harrison Bader tied the game with a three-run homer in the sixth. But Colin Poche got Bader out and struck out pinch hitter Isiah Kiner-Falefa; nothing to do.

Game behind the Tigers game into season. In a postgame exchange with reporters, the recitation of that fact angered Boone.

“We’ve got to hang out. I don’t care what the number is,” Boone said. “If we do that, we put ourselves in a good position. You can ask me tomorrow how important it is. It’s important. You can ask me if it’s double digits. I get it. We’ve got to get it right , we have to play well or none of this matters. It’s been a long…season. We’re grinding in now. It’s tough for us right now. We’ve got to find a way, and these guys are competing for their [ Tail].”

Boone and the Yankees can rest assured that this is not

. There were no wild cards then, and the Yankees are just two games away from a playoff berth under the current playoff format. However, the combination of injuries and underachievement didn’t hide that they were further behind than many expected at this point in time.

“Not caring at all; I don’t even look at that [ranking] stuff,” Budd said. “Every day, you come in, you have something to do. You have a task at hand. Tomorrow will be no different than today in the way we approach everything. It’s early and we’re still finding our groove.”

This is In the series between the Rays and Yankees — two teams that have battled each other for the past few seasons — it’s no longer a surprise that there’s a lot of flak over the diamond.

“Look, I know they’re upset,” Boone said. “I’d be sad if your guy got hit twice. In the meantime we’re just trying to get to know him a little bit. Two of them apparently got away with no intentions.”

The referee warned the decision of the two substitutes That prompted the ejection of Rays manager Kevin Cash, who protested his club’s disciplinary action after its star player was hit twice. Even so, the Rays ultimately agreed that the bumps were probably unintentional; Abreu said as much to Arozarena on the floor in an attempt to defuse the situation as the game continued.

“Everyone knows how I pitch and what direction I’m pitching,” Abreu said. “I was trying to execute a good sinker there, from the inside and a little bit off home plate. … He said a few personal words. I just told him I was executing a pitch there. He understood at this point.”
