ST PETERSBURG -- This is turning into a trend for the Rays.
Tampa Bay was shut out for the third time in the past seven games Wednesday, losing 4-0 to the Yankees in front of 21,505 at Tropicana Field. Overall, it was the 10th time the Rays have been shut out this season -- the most since 2004.
"I'm sure [the hitters] are frustrated," manager Joe Maddon said. "We've been shut out way too often recently. We've got to do better."

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tim Lincecum, who's widely regarded as the Giants' ace, has inadvertently strengthened his grip on a dual distinction: hard-luck pitcher.
The Giants have been shut out eight times in Lincecum's 21 starts this season. He endured this fate most recently Wednesday, when the Los Angeles Dodgers handed him his first career 1-0 defeat.
Dioner Navarro's seventh-inning leadoff homer denied the Giants a three-game series sweep and prevented them from extending their winning streak against the Dodgers to seven games for the first time since the franchises moved west in 1958.
