Yanks' bullpen covers for DL-bound Pettitte as bats bruise Price, Rays
NEW YORK -- For the second day in a row, a Yankees starter left early with an injury. This time, it could really hurt.Andy Pettitte strained his left groin Sunday and is expected to miss at least a month, the bad news for the Yankees on a day when they knocked around All-Star starter David Price and got a brilliant effort from their bullpen in a 9-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays."It was a good game -- with the exception of Andy," Derek Jeter said. "Someone else is going to have to pick it up."
• David Price allowed seven runs -- the second-most he's ever allowed in a start.
• Sunday was the first time since 2000 that Yankees starters got seven outs or fewer in consecutive starts.
• Carlos Pena six home runs vs. Andy Pettitte are the most Pettitte has allowed to any hitter.
• Mark Teixeira reached base safely for the 35th straight game.
Maddon gave All-Star LF Carl Crawford a partial rest, starting him at DH. Kapler played left field. Crawford lost track of how many outs there were on Evan Longoria's inning-ending flyout in the eighth. ... Joba Chamberlain struck out three in 1 2/3 innings, allowing a run in the ninth on pinch-hitter Matt Joyce's RBI double before Rivera came on. ... New York scored six runs with two outs.
