Rare Teixeira Error Costs Yankees Against Rays

B.J. Upton and Carlos Pena homered and the Tampa Bay Rays took advantage of Mark Teixeira’s first error of the season to beat the New York Yankees 4-3 on Monday night.

Pinch hitter Brooks Conrad’s RBI double with two outs in the seventh inning off David Robertson (0-3) made it 3-all. Teixeira followed by misplaying Elliot Johnson’s sharp grounder over first base for his first error in 671 chances this year, enabling Conrad to score the go-ahead run.

Matt Moore (5-5) allowed three runs while scattering nine hits over seven innings to win his fourth straight decision. The Rays stopped a two-game losing streak that had dropped them a season-high 7 1-2 games behind the first-place Yankees in the AL East.
