Urshela’s clutch hit helps Yanks gain on Rays

Gio Urshela is decidedly not the guy you want to face with runners in scoring position this season. If that wasn’t obvious Wednesday against the Mariners, the Yankees’ third baseman all but shouted it with a megaphone Friday night during New York’s 4-3 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Much like during Wednesday’s win, the bases were loaded and the Yankees needed offense. And just as he did against Seattle, Urshela calmly answered the call, this time driving in two runs in the sixth inning to help New York regain the lead.
