Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: New York Yankees

at Yankees

Tonight-Thursday

What's new: After losing two of three to the Rays, the Yankees seemed to have righted themselves in Baltimore, then closer Mariano Rivera uncharacteristically blew it for them Sunday. OF Nick Swisher is making a gradual return from knee stiffness, serving as the designated hitter. 1B Mark Teixeira was out of the starting lineup Saturday and Sunday to rest a bruised right thumb and broken toe, and 3B Alex Rodriguez also did not start Sunday, though both players appeared later in the game.

Key stat: Sunday's game was the Yankees' last of the season against a team below .500, as they finish with the Rays, Red Sox and Blue Jays.

Connections: Rays LHP Randy Choate and C Dioner Navarro are former Yankees; reliever Chad Gaudin and pitching coach Dave Eiland are former Rays.

Series history: Rays lead this season 8-6, including 3-2 in New York. Yankees lead 139-77 overall, 8-6 at new Yankee Stadium, 65-25 at the old.

    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.
