The Rays had the Yanks dead to rights last night, but a ninth inning rally looked like the Bombers had a little pulse left in them.

Derek Jeter hit a three run home run and Alex Rodriguez followed with a blast of his own (550th of his career) to pull the Yanks within two.

The Yanks scored five runs in the ninth, but failed to complete the comeback, falling 7-5.
