"Team Schizophrenia" has resurfaced again as the New York Yankees are back to their Jekyll and Hyde ways. After sweeping the Boston Red Sox in a three game series to pull within five games of the lead in the A.L. East, they lose two out of three to the lowly Tampa Bay Devil Rays losing the series finale 8-2. New York starter Andy Pettitte who looked like he was back in his salad days against Boston was turned into cole slaw by Tampa Bay. Pettitte never made it out of top of the seventh after giving up a three run jack to D-Rays first baseman Carlo Pena number 34 of the campaign. Tampa Bay got what they needed out of rookie starter Jason Hammel the 24 year old went five strong innings giving up five hits, one run and striking out seven. Hammel with the win sees his record improve to 2-4, Pettitte drops to 12-8. The Yankees fall to six games behind Boston who defeated Baltimore Sunday 3-2.
