The strangest play came in the fourth when Nick Swisher, with one out and Robinson Cano on second and Mark Teixeira on third, sent a ball deep into the gap in right-center. Centerfielder Colby Rasmus made a fine play on the ball and Cano ended up passing Teixeira, who had retreated to the bag to tag up when it became apparent Rasmus would catch it.
"I saw [Cano] coming and knew it wasn't going to be good," Teixeira said. "He knows better . . . It was a heck of a play [by Rasmus] but there's no reason to be running like that."
