Rays Blow Lead, Beat Yankees 4-3 in 12 Innings


NEW YORK (AP) — Logan Forsythe hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 12th inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 4-3 Monday night after squandering a late lead.

Matt Joyce and Kevin Kiermaier homered for the resurgent Rays, who have their first three-game winning streak since taking a season-best four in a row May 22-25. They’ve won five of six overall and no longer own the worst record in the majors, a distinction that had belonged to them every day since June 4.

Brian Roberts homered off Rays reliever Joel Peralta with one out in the ninth to tie it 3-all. As the ball cleared the right-field wall, Peralta crouched near the mound and pounded his fist into his glove.

But the struggling Yankees were unable to muster any more offense and lost for the seventh time in nine games.
