NEW YORK, Ny. -- Even on a night when the Rays blistered Yankees pitching for 17 hits in a 15-8 win, the starting pitching still managed to overshadow the team's offense.

By winning, the Rays moved to 86-70 on the season to creep within two games of the American League Wild Card-leading Red Sox, who were idle on Thursday. In addition, the Angels -- who entered Thursday night's action tied with the Rays in the Wild Card race, lost to the Blue Jays, to fall three games back of Boston.

Tampa Bay will begin a three-game series against Toronto on Friday night at Tropicana Field before finishing up the season with a three-game series against New York, also at home..

The first commencement at Harvard College, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was held on this date in 1642. (They must have some wild reunions these days, eh?)


LOS ANGELES, Ca. -- Wild Card fever gripped the Giants on Thursday. Coaches and a handful of players exulted over the telecast of St. Louis' come-from-ahead loss to the Mets. Tiebreaking procedures were announced. Matt Cain and Eric Surkamp, the possible starters for Friday night's series opener at Arizona, flew to Phoenix early to get proper rest.

The anticipation dissolved once the Giants actually started playing the Los Angeles Dodgers. Madison Bumgarner was unusually flat and the offense reverted to its helpless ways in an 8-2 loss that made the already farfetched notion of a Giants postseason appearance downright laughable.
