The Yankees had a promising situation developing in the bottom of the fifth, when they put their first two hitters on against Derek Holland. Then Mark Teixeira hit his fielder's choice grounder and had to come out of the game with a hamstring injury. And Alex Rodriguez - up next - followed that up by grounding a low away fastball to Elvis Andrus, who made an easy flip to Ian Kinsler, who threw to Mitch Moreland to complete the 6-4-3.
The Yankees' failure to add any insurance could prove costly. For the time being, they do still have a narrow 3-2 lead going into the sixth.
