Cole no-hit bid 8th place, Yanks beat Rays 4-2 for 50th win

scheduled tribe. Petersburg, Fla. (AP) – Gerrit Cole made a no-hit bid in the eighth inning, Aaron Hicks hit a tiebreaking triple in the ninth as Manuel Margot slammed into the wall of the right field and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday for their 50th win. 4-2 at night.

New York has won 17 of its last 19 games, and its 50-17 start is the best in the major leagues since the 2001 Seattle Mariners. The Yankees opened a 14-game lead over third-placed Tampa Bay in the AL East.

Cole scored 12 runs and scored three runs in 7 1/3 innings, allowing one run and one hit. Cole scored six consecutive runs at one point and took a 2-0 lead when Isaac Parades on his 105th pitch drove a slider off the mound and into center field. On June 3, Cole scored 6 2/3 perfect innings in Detroit.

Clay Holmes (5–0) took a 2–0 lead and allowed his first run since the opening day, ending a scoreless streak of 31 1/3 innings.

Anthony Rizzo hit Shane McClanahan’s home run in the first innings, and the Yankees got a run on an error from first baseman Ji-Man Choi in the seventh, which was the major league-high 45th unearned run allowed by Ray.

With the score 2-2, Josh Donaldson singled out Jason Adam (0-2) with a dismissal in the ninth and Hicks made a hanging change from a right-field wall in June, batting at .321. Margot fell to the ground as center fielder Brett Phillips retrieved the ball and Donaldson scored. The Rays went to manager Kevin Cash and an athletic trainer, Margot, who appeared to be bruised and suffocated, and exited the field on a cart.

Jose Trevino followed with a sacrificial fly.

Vandy Peralta finished ninth for his second save, and the Yankees improved to 6–2 against the Rays this season, losing two to Josh Lowe and retiring Francisco Mejia on a flyout.

After the parades sang a clearly deflected Cole, Lowe ran against the wall of the center field to Aaron Judge, and Holmes was relieved.

Mejia doubled the right-field line and Yandy Diaz hit a soft bouncer to Holmes, who threw the first to be dismissed as only the second of 13 runners scored this season.

Margot hit a bouncer toward third base, and Holmes’ throw was out of line at first and not in time as Margot reached with a single and Mejia drew it 2-2.

Rizzo hit his 19th home run this season and became only the second left-hander to dismiss McClanahan this year, behind Jesse Winker of Seattle.
