Rays end 7-game skid with easy 8-1 win over Yankees

Breaking a seven-game losing streak was actually pretty easy for the Rays on Sunday.   All they needed to beat the Yankees 8-1 was a solid six-inning start by Erasmo Ramirez, a few early runs, some sloppy play by the pinstripers and some rare no-stress relief work.  Plenty had been going wrong for the Rays …

NEW YORK | Brad Boxberger picked up the ball on a ninth-inning bunt and threw wildly to first. By the time second baseman Jake Elmore's throw reached home, the Tampa Bay Rays' losing streak had stretched to seven games. It's frustrating that the outcome of the game is based on a throw that should be pretty simple, Boxberger said after Saturday's 3-2 defeat to the New York Yankees.

A day after the Rays wasted a two-run, 12th-inning lead in a 7-5 defeat, botched bunt defense led to their first loss on a walk-off error...
