Jimenez struck out six, walked one and re­tired 25 of 26 — the lone baserun­ner com­ing on a fourth-in­ning walk — af­ter giv­ing up 1B Lo­gan Mor­ri­son’s three-run homer in the first. Rays 3B Evan Lon­go­ria left the game af­ter be­ing hit in the hand with a pitch, but X-rays were neg­a­tive.

RHPMasahiro Tanaka (12-4) set­tled down af­ter a shaky first to win his fifth straight de­ci­sion as the Yan­kees matched their sea­son high of be­ing six games over .500. They are 31⁄ games out of the Amer­i­can League’s sec­ond wild-card spot.
