Rays Vs. Yankees Final Score: New York Avoids Sweep, Beats Rays 6-4

The Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, 6-4, missing the opportunity to sweep their AL East rivals. The Yankees took Tampa Bay starter Matt Moore for six runs, three in the fourth, one in the sixth and two in the seventh, and Tampa Bay's offense couldn't make up the deficit.

With the loss, the Rays fall to 75-62 and move 2 1/2 games behind the first-place Yankees. They also failed to make up ground in the AL Wild Card race on a night when both the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics lost.

Moore takes the loss, falling to 10-9. Luke Scott and Evan Longoria both had an RBI on the night, with Scott collecting his 13th home run, and Ben Zobrist added another pair of runs on a triple to deep center in the bottom of the fifth.
