Rays prevail in 14th inning

Rays 10, Yankees 5


Wil Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays broke loose in the 14th inning while holding Derek Jeter to the worst hitting performance of his career, outlasting the New York Yankees for a wild 10-5 win that ended at 12:57 a.m. Saturday.

Jeter went 0-for-7 for the first time and grounded out with the bases loaded to finish the 13th. It was already a crazy game by then, and Yankee Stadium was nearly empty when it finally ended after 5 hours, 49 minutes.

The late innings saw a bit of everything: Rallies by both teams, a wild rundown featuring seven throws, two calls overturned and the ejection of Rays manager Joe Maddon.

The Rays also spent time trading gloves when they went to a five-man infield in the 13th. The switching positions led to a most strange putout: Brett Gardner grounded out and it was officially scored as 3-9 — first baseman to right fielder.

Myers got three of Tampa Bay’s 20 hits, and put the Rays ahead 6-5 against Chris Leroux (0-1).

New York had 18 hits, but lost its third straight in Joe Girardi’s 1,000th regular-season game as manager.
