St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Evan Longoria slugged a two-run homer, while both B.J. Upton and Desmond Jennings hit solo shots as the Tampa Bay Rays took down the New York Yankees, 5-2, in the second edition of a three- game series.

Upton finished with two RBI and Jennings scored twice for the Rays, who have won the first two in the set and four straight overall.

Alex Cobb (9-8) allowed four hits and a pair of runs over seven innings, fanning five with one walk. Fernando Rodney picked up his 42nd save and second in as many days with a scoreless ninth.

Robinson Cano's two-run blast in the first inning was all the offense for the Yankees, who fell into a tie atop the AL East with Baltimore. The Orioles crushed Toronto, 12-0, earlier Tuesday.

Freddy Garcia (7-6) was tagged in defeat for five runs on five hits with four walks and five strikeouts.
