Martin Prado's pinch-hit eighth-inning two-run home run helped the Yankees come from behind late to defeat the Rays on Thursday.
After Rays starter Alex Cobb lost his no-hit bid with one out in the eighth inning, Prado came off of the bench to hit for Brendan Ryan and manager Joe Girardi's decision paid off. Prado lifted a Brad Boxberger offering to left field, halving the Rays' lead to 4-2. It's already the sixth home run he has hit since joining the Yankees at the trade deadline, surpassing his four-month total with the D'Backs. Along with his 11 home runs, Prado has knocked in 57 runs and is slashing .278/.319/.407 overall. Sep 11 - 10:33 PM
