Rays Beat Yankees 5-2
The Rays pulled off a thrilling victory Monday night against the Yankees, winning 5-2. James Shields almost had another complete game, going 8 and 2/3 innings while giving up just 2 runs.
Every game for the Rays is basically a playoff game now. There was definitely a playoff atmosphere last night at Tropicana Field.
After the game was over most of the fans stuck around to watch the conclusion of the Boston/Baltimore game on the big screen. The place erupted with cheers after every strike and every out.
When Boston lost it put them into a tie with the Rays. Now it’s in the Rays’ hands to get in the post season. Win and you’re in, simple as that.
