Reliever Kyle Farnsworth allowed four runs in the eighth inning, and the Yanks' offense wasn't able bounce back in Wednesday night's loss. Right-hander Mike Mussina, making his second start, left in the third inning with a strained left hamstring.
Ramon Ortiz limited the Yankees to only one run on three hits in eight solid innings. Joe Mauer, Michael Cuddyer, Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter each had an RBI in the eighth to break up a tie game and salvage Wednesday night's series finale.
