Sabathia wasn't good, but he lasted 8 innings. The Yankee offense came up with 7 runs against the Rays but failed to take the lead. Teixeira and A-Rod hit homeruns.
Mariano Rivera blew the game in a major way. In a tied game he came in and gave up 4 runs. He looked miserable.
Cano is basically a hitting wasteland when it comes to high pressure situations. He had the opportunity to drive in some runs and he didn't come through. Its a common theme I've noticed throughout this season with him. He is awful in the clutch.
