MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays fell again to the New York Yankees for the second consecutive game, losing consecutive games for the first time since mid August.

Jake Faria started and pitched two scoreless innings before imploding in the third. The Yankees tallied seven runs during the frame, three against Faria. Andrew Kittredge failed to record an out, allowing a hit and walk, both of which came around to score. Jalen Beeks surrendered three runs on four hits over 3 23 innings of relief. Chih-Wei Hu had the best night of any Rays pitcher, delivering two scoreless innings.

On the offensive side of things, Tommy Pham stayed hot, with another extra base hit. Brandon Lowe had a three hit night, including two doubles. One of those doubles was with the bases loaded. Ji-Man Choi attempted to score from first on one of those hits, and collided with the Yankees catcher. He would be removed with a lacerated face and concussion like symptoms.

Ryne Stanek opens tonight against Masahiro Tanaka.
