The Yankees rediscovered their offensive groove, thanks to a big day from Giancarlo Stanton, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a 7-6 loss in 12 innings and a series sweep to the Rays on Sunday.
Stanton finished his day 5-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs, two doubles and two runs scored. It was the second five-hit game of Stanton’s career and the first time a Yankee had accomplished the feat since Curtis Granderson on April 19, 2012.
“Obviously, he was a big reason why were able to get back in it,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “It was a great day for G. Good to see him continue to swing it and continue to have success.”
