ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Yankees manager Joe Girardi has seen enough of his players getting hit by pitches from the Rays lately.
Derek Jeter was plunked on the left hand by Steve Geltz in the eighth inning of a 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night, the fifth time a New York batter has been hit by a Rays pitcher in the past week.
"It's a sensitive subject here," Jeter said. "You get a few guys hit ... I'm sure there's a lot of frustration, like they were frustrated when they almost got hit. So it's on both sides."
