Rays one back as Red Sox rally, 3 left vs. Yankees



The Rays are one game back in the wild-card chase with three to play after the Red Sox rallied in in the 14th inning to beat the Yankees 7-4.

The Rays have three games left at home with the Yankees, while the Red Sox go to Baltimore.

"I think we just really need to try to have fun these last three games,'' Rays 3B Evan Longoria said. "It's funny how you play 159 games and it comes down to three games to decide our fate. This is where we wanetd to be, this is the situation we wanted to be in, so you should just try to have fun with it.''

After Sunday's game, the Yankees released their pitching rotation, with rookie Hector Noesi, who worked 2 2/3 vs. the Rays last week, set to start Monday.

The matchups:
Monday: James Shields vs. Hector Noesi
Tuesday: Jeremy Hellickson vs. Bartolo Colon
Wednesday: David Price vs. TBA
