Yankees manager Joe Girard's quick trigger totally backfired on him in the fifth inning. Girardi took out starter CC Sabathia with one out, even though Sabathia had only allowed two runs. With right-handed hitter up in DH Trevor Plouffe, Girardi lifted Sabathia for righty Chad Green. Sabathia looked mad about the decision as he left the field after 86 pitches. It didn't work out for Girardi as Rays manager Kevin Cash countered and pinch-hit lefty Brad Miller. Miller promptly doubled to give the Rays the lead.
