Bobby Abreu doubled home the winning run in the tenth inning, giving the Yankees a 2-1 win over the AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays.

Yankee fans were seen wearing fake mustaches in the stands, and Yankee skipper Joe Girardi sported the "stache" during his post game show. The "staches" worked, as Giambi singled home Derek Jeter for the Yankees first run of the game.
