ST. PETERSBURG — A big game at the plate by Steven Souza Jr. failed to accomplish much for the Tampa Bay Rays.
Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira drove in two runs each, and the Yankees beat the Rays 5-3 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Souza homered, had three hits and drove in three runs.
“It’s just a bump in the road,” he said.
Souza also struck out with a man on base in each of his last two at bats.
