Is it that hard to hit a sac fly?

This is getting ridiculous. The Yankees left another runner at third with less than two outs, as Johnny Damon popped out with the bases loaded.

On Opening Night, Damon led off and inning with a triple and was unable to score.

Leaving runners on base in these situations will likely come back to haunt the Yankees.

Meanwhile, the Rays have taken the lead on a sac fly (what a concept). Shelley Duncan threw the ball away which led to the Rays' first run. B.J. Upton grounded into an RBI fielder's choice, as Carlos Pena was thrown out a second (replays showed he was out at second). Jonny Gomes hit the go-ahead sac fly to give the Rays the 2-1 lead.

If Melky Cabrera was in center field (his suspension was reduced to two games and began serving it last night), the play at home would have been more interesting.
