ST PETERSBURG -- A major meltdown under Teflon skies enabled the Rays to take a much-needed, come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Yankees on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field with 22,780 in attendance.

By winning, Tampa Bay snapped a three-game losing streak and gained ground in the American League East race. First-place Boston lost to Baltimore, allowing the Rays to move within seven games of the lead. The win also pulled Tampa Bay within 5 1/2 games of AL Wild Card-leading New York.

On this date in 1935, NBC radio debuted "G-men." The show was later renamed "Gangbusters."


SAN FRANCISCO -- The big-time hitter the Giants have been craving showed up Tuesday night at AT&T Park.
It wasn't Carlos Beltran, who remained with the New York Mets. It wasn't Willie McCovey or Will Clark, who were both on the premises but finished terrorizing opponents decades ago.
