Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set played at the New York Mets' park. "But if we go on a streak, with all the teams that are grouped in here, and went on a good run against the teams we're playing, we're going to find ourselves in an OK spot".

The Rays will fly back to Florida immediately after Wednesday afternoon's game for firsthand looks at the storm damage.

Major League Baseball announced before Irma hit Florida that the Rays and Yankees would play their three-game midweek set at Citi Field in Queens, the home of the Mets, instead of at the Trop. Monday night, Citi Field's lower deck was filled with Yankees fans who paid $25 apiece for field-level seats.

Tommy Hunter (3-5) pitched one inning to give Tampa Bay, on the fringe of the AL wild-card race, its second win in six games. Alex Colome earned his major-league-leading 44th save with a ideal ninth. It's not like we had an advantage where we got in earlier or anything.

"It's what we expected", said Tampa starter Jake Odorizzi after the game. "And maybe tonight's a start".

The test sent powerful tremors across the region, suggesting the device used was the most powerful the nation has ever tested. Experts are not so sure, but as long as Pyongyang claims to have the technology, the working assumption is that it's true.


Sonny Gray pitched well, but got no run support.

The Tampa Bay Rays were looking like a challenger in the American League East before suddenly struggling over the past month.

But from the moment the displaced Rays took the field to a smattering of boos, it was decidedly a Bronx Bombers crowd. The chants of "Let's go, Yankees" started before leadoff man Brett Gardner stepped in, and echoed for most of the evening. Foul balls that flew into empty sections were retrieved, eventually, by security guards.

One day later, they were in second by a half game, and the situation deteriorated from there. "It really did. I think it's impressive the amount of fans that have come out and", Cash said, pausing for effect before adding, "cheered us on". "[The hurricane] being over and things taking a turn for the better, you see guys here breathing sighs of relief", Odorizzi said. The Mets' game at Wrigley Field, meanwhile, was posted on the out-of-town scoreboard. Still got to bed at 1 (a.m. Sunday night).

"I'm more anxious about the off-field things than with the circumstances at the game", Odorizzi said Sunday.

Kevin Kiermaier quickly made it 1-all, homering on Gray's first pitch of the night. The righthander allowed five hits overall and struck out nine in only the second complete game for the Yankees since August 15, 2015. While five relievers tossed a scoreless inning each.

"It was tough, but that's behind us", Archer said.

While there is plenty at stake in the standings - certainly more than on April 15, 1998, when the Yankees hosted Collins' Anaheim Angels at Shea Stadium after a 500-pound beam fell at Yankee Stadium - Odorizzi acknowledged it would be hard to concentrate after the Tampa area was hammered by Hurricane Irma. It will also be the first time the Rays have played their season opener on a Thursday. He had an MRI. He allowed six earned runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over four innings in a 10-6 home loss to the Twins his last outing. They didn't get a runner past first base in the final eight innings.
