Yanks Drop 20 on Devil Rays for Second Game In A Row

The New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 21-4 yesterday, crushing their division foe for the second consecutive game. In scoring 20+ runs two games in a row, the Yankees did something that had not been done since 1902. Alex Rodriguez hit his 34th home run of the year and Yankees rookie Shelley Duncan connected twice, ending the weekend series with three home runs after his first career hit and RBI.

Andy Pettitte pitched six innings while striking out eight batters, increasing his record to 6-6; he has pitched much better than that this season, but the Yankees have previously struggled to score in games where Pettitte has pitched.

Yankee pitcher Sean Henn actually had an at bat in the game, as Shelley Duncan moved from DH to first base and Andy Phillips moved from first base to third base, replacing Alex Rodriguez; he struck out.
