Ben Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a game-ending single in the bottom of the ninth as the Rays edged the Yankees 1-0 on Monday.
The game featured 11 hits, 10 of them singles. Three of those came in the bottom of the ninth off Shawn Kelley. Zobrist is 5-for-13 with over his last three games. His homer Sunday was his first since July 29.
Alex Colome pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees in his spot start Monday.
Colome, called up before the game, was making his third start in the majors this year after opening the season on a 50-game PED suspension. He's always been an intriguing talent, though he still might project better in the pen than in the rotation for the long haul. It's unclear whether the Rays will give him another start before season's end.
Steve Tolleson had to leave Monday's game against the Orioles after being hit on the right wrist with a foul ball.
Tolleson is icing the wrist down and is considered day-to-day. He had a couple singles in three at-bats before exiting.
Chris Capuano kept the Rays scoreless for six innings in a no-decision Monday.
This comes five days after he lasted one-third of an inning against the same team, giving up four runs. Ironically, the Yankees won that game and lost this one. They had won each of Capuano's last four starts, even though he gave up 13 runs over 17 innings in those games.
Wei-Yin Chen picked up his 16th win by holding the Blue Jays to two runs in 5 2/3 innings on Monday.
Chen is the first Orioles left-hander to win 16 games since Jimmy Key in 1997. Actually, he's just the second Orioles pitcher using either hand to win 16 games this millennium, joining Chris Tillman (16 wins in 2013). Since 1990, they've had only one pitcher win more than 16 games; Mike Mussina did it four times.
