The ghosts of Yankee Stadium just got the Rays. Tampa's Alex Colome was about to pitch out of a ninth inning jam for the save when shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and second baseman Tim Beckham, shifting, got confused on who should take a grounder. Instead of the final out, the ball bounced into the outfield for an RBI single to tie the game at five and send it to extra innings. Brett Gardner scored the run after a leadoff triple. He had been left at third by Clint Frazier (groundout) and Aaron Judge (flyout) before Sanchez "came through."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was thrown out in the seventh for arguing balls and strikes. He did a poor man's Billy Martin impersonation, drawing a little line in the dirt near the plate. It was his third ejection of the year.

Granderson bids goodbye to Duda

Curtis Granderson's farewell to Lucas Duda after Duda was dealt to the Rays on Thursday involved some well wishes and latching on to him so he couldn't leave the Mets' locker room.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

With his third strikeout on Thursday, CC Sabathia passed Cy Young for 20th all-time in strikeouts. Sabathia now has 2,800 career strikeouts.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer
