Brad Boxberger limited the damage by getting a run-scoring fielder’s choice and a double play, but Jennings’ run cut the Rays’ lead to 5-4, and Alex Colome blew the save in the ninth, after which the Yankees won in 10. On the flip side, Tommy Kahnle threw a 1-2-3 seventh, striking out one. He has yet to give up a walk or a hit...
