The Yankees beat the Rays, 4-3, at Tropicana Field on Friday night. >> Box score
Five Takeaway's from Friday's game...
1) Domingo German was cruising through four innings, but once the Rays lineup began its third time to the plate, things fell apart. German had surrendered just two home runs this season coming into the game, but allowed two homers in the fifth inning alone, which was enough to cough up the lead. German, who still got the win and is now 7-1, finished with a line of 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 BB and 5 K.
2 ) Gio Urshela continues to get huge hits. With an out in the sixth inning, he came up with the bases loaded and delivered a go-ahead two-run single. Urshela is now 9-for-23 with runners in scoring position this season.
3 ) Miguel Andujar broke a 0-for-18 skid with a sixth-inning infield single. He ended the day going 1-for-4, and has yet to record an extra base hit this season.
4 ) Tommy Kahnle is going to have a reserved spot in this space before long. Kahnle delivered another dominant outing, hurling a scoreless sixth inning in which he broke a couple of bats and then struck out his final batter on a nasty slider. His ERA is now 1.13 for the season.
5 ) With a one-run cushion, Aroldis Chapman stepped on the hill in the ninth inning for the second straight night. Chapman struck out two batters as he picks up his ninth save of the season.
