Wilmer Font became the latest pitcher to slow down
Font worked into the sixth inning to get his first major league win Garrett Bradbury Jersey , Willy Adames homered and the Tampa Bay Rays blanked the Yankees 4-0 Saturday.

Font (1-3) allowed three hits, one walk and struck out four over 5 2/3 innings. Four relievers completed a four-hitter.

”Just an awesome performance by him and the rest of the guys,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

The Rays have won the first two of a three-game series against the Yankees, who have the best record in the majors.

New York has scored just once in its last 25 innings.

”It’s amazing,” Font said. ”It’s the second win in a row for us. Perfect.”

Adames had an RBI single during a two-run second and added a solo homer in the seventh off Sonny Gray (5-5).

New York (50-24), coming off a three-game sweep over Seattle, is the only team in the big leagues that hasn’t dropped more than two straight games this year. This is the latest the Yankees have gone into a season without losing three in a row since August 1954.

”You do shrug it off,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”We also know you turn the page and really lock in. Come in with urgency and expect to get a `W.”’

Gray gave up four runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings.

After Jake Bauers had a first-inning RBI double, Tampa Bay took a 3-0 lead in the second when Daniel Robertson hit a run-scoring double and scored on Adames’ single.

”Definitely uplifting Noah Fant Jersey ,” Rays reliever Sergio Romo said. ”It’s something we can feed off of, most definitely.”

The Yankees had one hit in eight at-bats with runners in scoring position, including three unsuccessful tries in both the second and third innings.

New York was limited to five hits and went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position in a 2-1 loss Friday night.

”It’s been two games,” Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius said. ”So, I don’t think it’s really, like, a big deal.”

TANAKA TIME

Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka, on the 10-day disabled since June 9 with strained left and right hamstrings, will have his first bullpen session Sunday and may start a simulated game Friday. ”If you look back two weeks ago there was no way I would be able to move the way that I did today http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-cheap ,” Tanaka said through a translator. ”It’s definitely better.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rays: RHP Chris Archer (left abdominal strain) felt great one day after a 20-pitch bullpen session and will take the mound again Monday. ”Highly encouraged,” said Archer, who could return around the All-Star break. … RHP Jake Faria (left oblique strain) threw 25 fastballs in his first mound session.

NUMBERS

Rays 1B C.J. Cron doubled in four at-bats and is 5 for his last 57. The other four hits were homers. . Tampa Bay CF Kevin Kiermaier is 1 for 16 in four games since coming back from right thumb surgery.

HOME COOKING

The Rays have given up one or fewer runs in four straight home games. It ties the team record set in 2008.

UP NEXT

Yankees: RHP Domingo German (2-4), Sunday’s starter, got his first major league win by beating Tampa Bay on June 14. He struck out 10 and allowed three earned runs over six innings.

Rays: LHP Blake Snell (9-4) had his scheduled start Sunday pushed back one day to Monday night against Washington. Cash said Snell could benefit from the extra day off given his recent workload. Tampa Bay will have RHP Matt Andriese (1-3) open a bullpen day Sunday.

Maikel Franco didn’t know he’d be in Philadelphia’s starting lineup until he arrived at Miller Park. The Milwaukee Brewers likely wish he’d been on the bench.

Franco homered and drove in four runs and the Phillies held off Milwaukee’s ninth-inning rally for a 10-9 victory.

”We didn’t tell him he was going to be starting,” Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said. ”He worked great at-bats. He punished pitchers when they made mistakes. (Franco) has shown an incredible attitude recently.”

Franco, who had been out of the lineup recently after struggling at the plate, said he comes prepared to play, even when his name isn’t on the lineup card.

”I can’t control that Drew Lock Jersey ,” Franco said. ”I just try to be ready every single day.”

Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera also homered as the Phillies took two of three from the Brewers, who are tied with Atlanta for the best record in the NL.

Milwaukee trailed 10-5 going into the ninth. Jesus Aguilar led off with a home run and Eric Thames hit his second homer of the game, a three-run shot with two outs off Hector Neris.

Christian Yelich followed with a deep drive to center field and Herrera made a leaping catch for the final out, giving Jake Thompson his second save.

”We thought he went deep, the way it looked off the bat,” Thames said. ”We were close to tying that game.”

Tommy Hunter (2-0) picked up the win with one inning of relief.

Hoskins hit a two-run homer in the first off starter Chase Anderson (5-6). Hoskins connected for the second straight day and his 10th of the season.

Thames had his first career leadoff home run, a drive into the right-field bullpen off Aaron Nola. Milwaukee tied it in the third on Lorenzo Cain’s RBI double before Philadelphia regained the lead in the fourth on Franco’s two-run homer.

Franco is 5 for 10 with three home runs in his career against Anderson.

The Brewers pulled even in the fifth on a run-scoring double by Travis Shaw, who then scored on Aguilar’s single that chased Nola.

Nola gave up four runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings.

Nick Williams drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single off reliever Jeremy Jeffress in the sixth to give Philadelphia a 6-4 lead. Yelich had a sacrifice fly in the bottom half.

Franco’s bases-loaded single in the seventh drove in two more as the Phillies extended the lead to 8-5. Philadelphia added another run in the eighth on Scott Kingery’s RBI double.

Herrera hit a leadoff homer in the ninth to grow the lead to 10-5 before the Brewers rallied.

ROSTER MOVE

The Brewers optioned RHP Jorge Lopez to Triple-A Colorado Springs and recalled RHP Adrian Houser.

ARCIA BENCHED

Hernan Perez started at shortstop in place of struggling Orlando Arcia. ”He’s been swinging the bat pretty well,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Perez. Arcia http://www.broncoscheapauthenticstore.co...rsey-cheap , who is hitting .204, was sent to Triple-A Colorado Springs on May 25 but returned five days later after his replacement, Tyler Saladino, injured his left ankle. Perez had two doubles and a walk in five plate appearances.

NOLA’S STREAK ENDS

Nola failed to pitch at least five innings for the first time since May 31, 2017, snapping a streak that spanned 35 starts. ”My command wasn’t where it usually is,” Nola said. ”They hit me around a good bit. They were on me every inning.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Phillies: Williams was hit on the left elbow by a pitch in the fourth but remained in the game.

Brewers: Houser vomited behind the mound while warming up in the eighth. He stayed in the game and faced two batters before vomiting a second time. He again remained on the mound and faced three more hitters to finish the inning.

”I think it was a combination of traveling this morning and not having a lot of food in me. I was trying to stay hydrated in the bullpen. It’s pretty hot here compared to Colorado Springs. All combined, it got me.”

Houser’s willingness to stay in the game impressed Kapler.

”I have a lot of respect for anybody who would step behind the mound and throw up and step back on the mound and pitch,” he said. … LHP Wade Miley http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com...rsey-cheap , sidelined since May 9 with a left oblique injury, threw a simulated game Sunday morning. He will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Biloxi. … Zach Davies, on the DL with right rotator cuff inflammation, is expected to make a rehab start on Tuesday at Triple-A Colorado Springs.

UP NEXT

Phillies: Nick Pivetta (4-6) will pitch the opener of a three-game set against St. Louis.

Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin (6-1) takes the mound in the opener of a three-game series at Pittsburgh.
