'Rocc' on: Rays rejoice in rally
Early power can't lift Yanks
The Bombers appeared to be well on their way to a sweep and an eighth straight win over the Rays, sending 10 men to the plate in a five-run third inning, highlighted by Jason Giambi's 11th career grand slam. But New York was stymied after that, and the bullpen struggled after Kris Wilson exited.
