Tampa Series

The Yankees won Game 1 in impressive fashion and won Game to in the third-order standings. Unfortunately the real game is first order and having a WHIP on offense of 2 for the game does not guarantee runs. In fact the Yankees were very creative in finding ways to not score including a 6-1-5 fielders choice double play. Eventually the Devil Rays broke through in the tenth with two runs against Rivera. The Yankees loaded the bases in the bottom of the tenth but couldn't score. It was mystifying that Torre went with Williams and not Phillips as a pinch hitter but that's the cost of sentimental signings. Then in game 3 the Yankees got lucky and scored three unearned runs against the Cy Young candidate Mark Hendrickson (0.00 ERA).
