Rays starting pitcher Jeffrey Springs (59) holds a ball after giving up his second home run of the fourth inning to the New York Yankees' Matt Carpenter (24) Friday at Tropicana Field.
Jeffrey Springs allows two home runs, and the offense gets two hits in eight innings against Jameson Taillon.
Notes | The first baseman has been the Yankees starter’s primary nemesis in recent seasons.
In working in stadium management for the Tampa Sports Authority and the Rays, he was involved in hosting several major events.
Ryan Yarbrough goes from no-hitter to no longer pitching in the sixth inning, and quickly.
