St. Petersburg, FL - Curtis Granderson hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning and the New York Yankees avoided a three-game sweep by defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday.

Alfonso Soriano started the winning rally with a one-out double off Jamey Wright (2-2). He stole third and came home on Granderson's fly ball to center.

Mariano Rivera, making his last regular-season appearance at Tropicana Field, received a standing ovation before getting the final three outs for his 38th save. The closer is planning to retire after this season.
