ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Alex Cobb scattered three hits over 8 1-3 innings, Ben Zobrist drove in two runs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Cobb (3-1) gave up only two hits through the eighth - Eduardo Nunez's second-inning single and an infield single by Jayson Nix in the sixth. The right-hander, who struck out seven and walked one, was replaced by Fernando Rodney after giving up a one-out single in the ninth to Brett Gardner.
After allowing Ichiro Suzuki's single, Rodney completed his third save by retiring Robinson Cano and Travis Hafner.
Zobrist put the Rays up 2-0 on a two-out, two-run double off Andy Pettitte (3-1) in the fifth.
