CLEVELAND OH- AUGUST 03 New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier at bat during the sixth inning of the Major League Baseball game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians

He is now 5-6 with a 2.22 ERA in the second half, striking out 69 and walking 22 in 69 innings. "So, that's a pretty good sign, " said Joe Girardi.

"Given how their lineup was shaped with (Aaron) Judge, (Gary) Sanchez, (Matt) Holliday, (Starlin) Castro, I felt like that was the ideal time to kind of bring in our right-handed weapon against their guys", Cash said.

Rays lefthander Blake Snell, 3-0 with a 3.16 ERA his last six starts, allowed one run and two hits in five innings plus.

Odorizzi struggled in his one start against the Yankees, allowing four runs over six innings in a loss.

"Watch the pace of the game and kind of let the pace dictate how I get ready at this point", Cishek said. "I'll do whatever it takes to get us back in the playoffs and gives us a chance to get another ring".

Dan Jennings got the final out of the seventh before winning pitcher Tommy Hunter (3-5) threw a ideal eighth.

Hurricane Irma: Chainsaw-wielding nun helps clear trees in South Florida
Cleaning up areas hit by a storm is a very hazardous task, especially when working with chainsaws. When it comes to neighbors helping neighbors it doesn't get much better than this.

Hechavarria would get the best of Gray his next time, ripping a solo home run to deep left field to put the Rays on top 2-1.

It was gone off the bat, and every one of the 21,024 crammed into Citi Field's lower bowls, Party Deck, and Coca-Cola porch knew it. Adeiny Hechavarria, who had gotten three-quarters of the way through a cycle Monday night, got the one leg that eluded him 24 hours earlier, and it couldn't have come at a worse time for the visiting team.

"Normally, I'm out of my element swinging that hard, I normally don't swing that hard", Hechavarria said through an interpreter.

Opening a stretch that has 17 of their final 20 games in NY, the Yankees closed within three games of Boston in the AL East and opened a four-game lead over Minnesota for the top AL wild card.

And the Yankees' 2018 season ends at Boston, with a three-game series against the rival Red Sox. Four relievers closed it out, with Alex Colome pitching a ideal ninth for his 44th save.

Gray went eight strong innings, allowing just five hits and striking out nine. "But tonight, it wasn't meant to be".

Nobel institute: Suu Kyi can't be stripped of prize
Fresh violence erupted in Rakhine state almost two weeks ago when security forces launched an operation against the Rohingya. Some are now calling for Suu Kyi to be stripped of the Nobel Prize she won in 1991 for resisting Myanmar's military junta.

Jaime Garcia will be looking to prove Wednesday afternoon that he deserves to pitch a couple of times every two weeks for the New York Yankees. "But over the long haul, if you pitch like that, it's going to work out really well for everyone involved". NY is now 77-65 overall and 37-38 on the road.

"Sometimes you score two runs and that's enough", Girardi said.

NOTES: Rays OF Steven Souza Jr. returned to the lineup after missing three games with a bruised left knee.

Yankees: 1B Greg Bird was scratched because of back spasms he started to feel Sunday.

Major League Baseball moved the series to Queens because of the availability of hotel rooms in NY.

The lefty-hitting first baseman underwent a precautionary MRI on Tuesday. The Yankees will host the Rays in their home opener on April 2.
