Rays Rays near playoff heaven with seventh straight win

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.

By reaching 90 wins, the Rays hit that mark for the fourth consecutive season. That will be the longest such streak in the Major Leagues unless the Rangers win 90 as well.

"That's outstanding, it's a great tribute to the entire organization, from top to bottom," manager Joe Maddon said. "It really is significant."

After three scoreless frames, Wil Myers greeted Yankees starter Ivan Nova with a single to start the fourth. James Loney then walked before Evan Longoria singled to left to score Myers for a one-run lead.
