New York, NY. -- No "Enter Sandman" blaring from the speakers at Yankee Stadium. No No. 42 running in from the bullpen. And last but not least, none of Mariano Rivera's famed cutters were seen in the ninth inning of Wednesday night's Rays-Yankees contest.

What the Yankees didn't have combined with the Rays' never-say-die attitude set up a four-run top of the ninth and a 4-1 Tampa Bay win with 38,024 watching.

The win snapped the Rays' losing streak at three games and pushed the club to 20-11 on the season.

Los Angeles, CA.--
Tim Lincecum was a supernova Wednesday night, flashing brilliantly but only briefly across the western sky.

Once he flamed out, only darkness remained for the Giants, who fell, 6-2, to the Los Angeles Dodgers. San Francisco absorbed its ninth defeat in its last 15 games.

The Monday after Mother's Day is a sad, sad day for many couples. According to a website that specializes in cheating partners, Ashley Madison, more women start their search for someone new the Monday after Mother's Day than any other day of the year, and it's been that way the last four years. The site's creator believes the reason falls on a husband that is thoughtless on her special day.
