NEW YORK -- James Loney, Logan Forsythe and Curt Casali drove in two runs each as the Rays found an offensive spark and capitalized on some Yankees errors in an 8-1 win on Sunday at Yankee Stadium to snap a seven-game losing skid.
Yankees starting pitcher Ivan Nova and second baseman Jose Pirela both committed costly errors. Nova's error came in the fifth inning, when Asdrubal Cabrera laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance Casali, who had doubled. Nova fielded the ball and threw it past third baseman Chase Headley, allowing Casali to score and Cabrera to advance to second. Pirela's double error came in the eighth, when he bobbled a grounder and threw wide to first. The Rays scored four runs in the frame.
