Loney's Single Lifts Rays Over Yankees 3-1

By  | 

Bronx, NY - James Loney hit a tiebreaking two-run single with two outs in the seventh inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 3-1 on Sunday.

Chris Archer pitched six innings of one-run ball for his first win in three starts since June 7 and the Rays earned a split of their four-game series in the Bronx after the Yankees celebrated their 67th Old-Timers' Day.

Fernando Rodney struck out the side in the ninth for his 15th save in 20 chances this season.

Archer (2-3) struck out four, allowed six hits, with a walk and a hit batter, and outdueled Ivan Nova, who returned to the Yankees' rotation from the minor leagues and settled down after a shaky first inning.
