Rays Magic Number Down To Two

NEW YORK — Just enough offense and a healthy dose of Alex Cobb led the Rays to a 4-0 win over the Yankees on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.

In completing the three-game sweep of the Yankees, the Rays (90-69) won their seventh straight game while claiming their 12th win in their last 15. The sweep of the Yankees was the Rays’ first three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium.

Most important, the win cut the Rays’ magic number to earn an American League Wild Card berth to two games.
