Girardi ejected in animated argument, 3 tossed in Yanks-Rays

Archer will get the Yankees at home in his next turn through the Tampa Bay rotation.

Evan Longoria, Corey Dickerson, and Peter Bourjos have scored s home run against Severino in the previous encounters this season.

"Sanchie did a great job behind the plate again, calling a great game, " Sabathia said after yielding one earned run in five innings to post his second win of the road trip. I hit it hard and I was hoping (the third base coach) would just send him and see what happens.

Andriese (4-1) hit Aaron Judge with a pitch leading off the sixth and was thrown out. "I was pretty surprised to be ejected". Including extra-inning games the Yankees are 4-1-1 all time when striking out 17 times or more. "I don't like it, but it is what it is. I just want to execute and show the team that I can do it no matter what the deal is".

Longoria, who has owned Sabathia and the Yankees throughout his career, drove a 1-and-2 fastball into the gap in right-center, a certain RBI double at least. Judge answered with an opposite-field shot in the top of the second to tie the score.

The Yankees got Castro's run-scoring grounder in the first and a third-inning RBI double from Jacoby Ellsbury.

Chris Archer (3-3) struck out a season-high 12, including Judge and Matt Holliday three times each.

The Rays continued to pile onto Tanaka in the bottom of the fourth inning when Daniel Robertson led off the inning with a double and Sucre reached base on a dropped third strike.

Aside from one bad inning Chris Archer has a dominant outing against the Yankees while striking out a season-high 12

With Tanaka turning in a bullpen-killing performance Saturday and the Yankees in a stretch of 20 straight games and the starters averaging less than five innings in the previous 10 games, the Yankees elevated right-hander Bryan Mitchell from Triple-A SWB Sunday.

"We have to get (Tanaka) right", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Ramirez was brought into the rotation last week after promising young pitcher Blake Snell was demoted back to AAA.

The Rays trailed 2-1 in the seventh when they loaded the bases with no outs off Adam Warren, who then allowed Logan Morrison's sacrifice fly.

Layne escaped further damage when Tim Beckham grounded into a fielder's choice to end the inning.

Jesse Chavez (4-5) pitched into the sixth and left soon after Bruce's three-run drive made it 9-5. A base-hit from Gregorius and a walk by Chris Carter forced manager Kevin Cash to go to Danny Farquhar, ending Archer's game. "Winning helps a lot". They moved past that and played really complete baseball and won games.

This weekend the New York Yankees are traveling to St. Petersburg to face the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-game series.

"He's hurt us in the past, " Thomson said of Longoria. "He wasn't showing him up.". In those four games he is 2-2 but has allowed 34 hits in 18 innings, given up 10 homers, has a 10.50 ERA, hitters are batting.395 and have an OPS of 1.260.
