St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the eighth inning on Wednesday and the Yankees avoided a sweep with a 4-3 win over the Rays.

Carlos Pena gave Tampa Bay a lead 3-1 lead with a two-run homer in the seventh, but Kyle Farnsworth (0-1) walked the bases loaded a half-inning later, then issued a free pass to Alex Rodriguez to push across a run. Cano followed with a line drive up the middle off of Jake McGee, putting New York on top for good.

Boone Logan (3-0) earned the win despite giving up Pena's two-run blast, and the Yankees halted a nine-game losing streak at Tropicana Field.

David Price took a no-hitter into the fifth inning for Tampa Bay. In all, he gave up four hits -- including a game-tying seventh-inning homer to Mark Teixeira -- walked two and struck out eight over seven innings in the no decision.

Sean Rodriguez broke up New York starter David Phelps' no-hitter with a fourth-inning RBI single.

That was the only run charged to Phelps, who was making his third major league start. He lasted 4 1/3 frames, walked three, and recorded a career-high eight strikeouts.
