Yankees Vs. Rays Final Score: David Robertson Blown Save Hands Tampa Bay 4-1 Win

Fans of the New York Yankees did not leave the stadium feeling any better about missing Mariano Rivera on Wednesday night. In his second save opportunity since taking the closer job from the injured Rivera, David Robertson allowed four runs, blowing a save and handing the Tampa Bay Rays a 4-1 win.

With two men on, B.J. Upton hit a sacrifice fly that tied the game. Next up was Matt Joyce who hammered the ball to right field for a three-run shot.

Yankees starter David Phelps struggled himself through nearly five innings of work, walking four, but not allowing any runs to score. The bullpen kept the Rays off the board until the ninth.

New York's lone run came in the first when Robinson Cano smacked a double that sent Derek Jeter home.

The Yankees have one more game against the Rays on Thursday before a three-game set at home against Seattle over the weekend.
