Ichiro Hits 2-Run Single In 9th, Yanks Win 4-3

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Ichiro Suzuki hit a go-ahead two-run single in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 Tuesday night.

Tampa Bay is winless in all five of Price’s starts this year. The left-hander (0-2) allowed three runs and eight hits over eight-plus innings.

Robinson Cano ended AL Cy Young Award winner David Price’s night with a leadoff single in the ninth. After Cano stole second on a pitch by Fernando Rodney that struck out Vernon Wells, pinch-hitter Travis Hafner was intentionally walked and Lyle Overbay walked to load the bases.

First baseman James Loney helped Rodney by making a sliding catch on Chris Stewart’s foul ball, but Suzuki then drove in two for a 4-2 lead on a liner to center.
