The game between the Yankees and the Rays saw a thrilling end. The Rays covered the six runs gap to win the game. But for the Bronx Bombers, it was a tough pill to swallow as they had the situation under control. They were leading the game with six runs and could have gotten them a second consecutive win against the Tampa Bay Rays. Talkin’ Yanks shared the post on the result with the caption” Yanks drop a game that they had led 6-0″.

The Yanks started the game great and did not allow the Rays to get a single run in the first four innings of the contest. All the pitchers were having a great time until the sixth inning when they lost the plot. Gerrit Cole, who otherwise had a decent game, saw two of his pitches converted into home runs. It opened up the door to the Rays’ comeback.
