The Yankees battled deep into the night in the first game of their two-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays, but fell 2-1 in the 12th inning.

Ji-Man Choi’s solo home run in the 12th off of Cory Gearrin sealed the win for the AL Wild Card chasing Rays, who moved a half game ahead of the Cleveland Indians for the second berth in the one game playoff.

The Yanks are now 102-56 and two in the loss column behind the Houston Astros for best record in the American League.
