It’s pretty much understood throughout baseball the Yankees are going to bleed for every run until the season runs out of track.

That’s the way it has been across four-plus months, and the final six weeks are going to be more of the same because the Yankees are Bronx Bombers in name only.

So, it was very fitting that Derek Jeter’s ninth-inning single past a diving Logan Forsythe into right field lifted the Yankees to a 3-2 win over the Rays in front of 31,042 at Tropicana Field on Saturday.

Jeter, who was in sacrifice-bunting mode for all four pitches from gas-throwing lefty Jake McGee with Brett Gardner on second and no outs, abandoned the bunt at 2-2. Then he hit the ball hard to the right side, the part of the field he has used from the day he arrived in the big leagues.

“He throws hard,’’ Jeter said of McGee, who came with a 100-mph fastball that Jeter turned around for a single. “There is no secret at what he will do. It’s not a comfortable at-bat.’’

Lately, nothing has been comfortable for the Yankees, who stopped a season-high five-game losing streak and moved seven games back of the Orioles in the AL East and four behind the Mariners in the race for the second AL wild-card ticket.
