Rays Ride Late Homerun To Down Yankees


The Tampa Bay Rays defeated the New York Yankees 2-1 in Friday's Game 5 of the American League Division Series. As a result, the Rays secured the victory in the best-of-five series, as well as a trip to the AL Championship Series, where they'll meet the Houston Astros.

The Rays fell behind the Yankees early, when Aaron Judge delivered a solo home run to give New York a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. Yet it was the Rays who struck next and struck last. Austin Meadows hit a game-tying home run against Gerrit Cole in the bottom of the fifth. Mike Brosseau then launched a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the eighth to give Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead, which they would hold onto for the victory.

This is Tampa Bay's first trip to the ALCS since 2008, when they won the pennant. Here are four takeaways from Game 5.
