NEW YORK -- Following a long stretch of futility, Tampa Bays fortunes have turned. Logan Forsythe hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 12th inning and the Rays beat the New York Yankees 4-3 Monday night despite squandering a late lead. "This is my own personal theory, is that to win on the road in extra innings really is good for a teams morale," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. Kevin Kiermaier homered in his third straight game and Matt Joyce also went deep for the resurgent Rays, who have their first three-game winning streak since taking a season-best four in a row May 22-25. Theyve won five of six overall and no longer own the worst record in the majors, a distinction that had belonged to them since June 4. "Nobody quit," Maddon said. "To lose a game like this would have been really hard to walk in here. Its very difficult, and you dont know the negative complementary impacts its going to have." The only real bad news for the Rays was that shortstop Yunel Escobar is headed to the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 25, because of a sore right shoulder. "Pretty much on target for a minimal stay," Maddon said. Brian Roberts homered off Rays reliever Joel Peralta with one out in the ninth to tie it 3-all. As the ball cleared the right-field wall, Peralta crouched near the mound and pounded his fist into his glove. But the scuffling Yankees were unable to muster any more offence and lost for the seventh time in nine games. "They were able to get the big hits at the end and we werent," manager Joe Girardi said. "Weve had two extremely tough losses on this homestand." Chris Archer nearly became the first pitcher in more than a century to win his first five outings against the Yankees, and Tampa Bay hurlers finished June with 287 strikeouts -- breaking the major league record for one month set by the Chicago Cubs, who had 286 in August 2002. "It was so special," Archer said. "Were going to be etched in stone for a while." Brandon Guyer drew a two-out walk from Jose Ramirez (0-2) in the 12th and stole second. Forsythe lined the next pitch into centre field, scoring Guyer easily. "Big boost in confidence. Thats why we keep battling every game," said Forsythe, who also played excellent defence at second base. "We never think were out of it, and its great to be that guy tonight." Brad Boxberger (1-1) pitched two perfect innings for his first major league win in 72 appearances. "Really dominant kind of stuff," Maddon said. "He was in total command of the moment." Archer went seven innings and was in line for the victory until Roberts homered. The last pitcher to start his career 5-0 in five games against New York was Washington Senators Hall of Famer Walter Johnson from 1907-08 -- back when the club was still called the Highlanders. The 25-year-old Archer has a 1.51 ERA in 35 2-3 innings against the Yankees. Ryan Hanigan gave the Rays a 3-2 lead in the eighth with an RBI single off closer David Robertson. Hanigans clutch hit came after Dellin Betances issued consecutive two-out walks. "I couldnt make pitches with two outs," Betances said. "Thats why I was so frustrated: I couldnt end the inning." New York pitchers have walked 16 in the last two games. Despite his teams record (36-49), Maddon is optimistic the Rays have turned things around in time to make a run. Tampa Bays bats busted loose for 12 runs Sunday in Baltimore, and Joyce picked up Monday right where he left off. Joyce, who tied team records with five hits and 12 total bases the day before, connected off David Phelps in the first inning for his third home run in two games. Going into Sunday, Joyce had three homers all season -- none since May 11. Kiermaier, who had three hits, made it 2-0 with a leadoff shot in the third, but the Yankees finally broke through against Archer in the bottom half. Brett Gardner grounded an RBI triple inside first base and scored on Derek Jeters groundout. NOTES: When LHP David Price starts Tuesday night, hell try to join Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez as the only pitchers to strike out at least 10 in six consecutive games. In 22 career starts against the Yankees, Price has never fanned 10. ... RHP Jeremy Hellickson (elbow surgery) threw 38 pitches in Florida and felt good, Maddon said. Now, the Rays will determine whether Hellicksons next rehab outing will be for Class-A Charlotte or Triple-A Durham. Hellickson ended his rehab start with Durham last Friday after three innings, complaining of discomfort. ... Rays CF Desmond Jennings was hit by pitches in the ninth and 11th. ... New York LHP CC Sabathia (right knee) threw a bullpen at Yankee Stadium and is scheduled to throw about 50 pitches in a rehab start Thursday for Double-A Trenton. "Hopefully, hes on the horizon," GM Brian Cashman said. Marty Mcsorley Jersey

.com) - Manu Ginobili capped off a 26-point night with a go-ahead layup with 24 seconds left in overtime, with the basket giving the San Antonio Spurs a much-needed 95-93 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.Nashville Predators 3 Winnipeg Jets 2 OT – After a game like this, the question is often about the extra point. Was it a point gained, or a point lost? For Jets head coach Claude Noel and a number of players the thought was it was a point lost because after a very good start to the game, they could not maintain it for a full 60 minutes. For other players, being down 2-1 and tying the game with three minutes left against a very good defensive team was a point gained. The Jets controlled the early going, out-shooting the Predators 7-1, but a Shea Weber power play goal at 15:53 opened the scoring. The Jets have only scored the games opening goal twice this season. Anthony Peluso scored the only goal of the second period to tie the game at one. The goal came on a wrap around and was his first NHL goal. In the third, Patric Hornqvist put home a rebound from the high slot to regain the lead for the Predators, until Blake Wheeler tied the game at 16:59. For Wheeler it was his third of the year and he has now scored in back to back games. The Jets got a late power play but did not register a shot on goal. The Jets have now gone six games without a power play goal. Last season they started with nine power play goals in the first nine games, before going through stretches of no PP goals in eight games and one in 16 games. Craig Smith with his second goal of the year ended the contest at 4:43 of overtime in favour of the Predators. It looked like the Jets were going to get one last rush until the puck bounced over the stick of defenceman Dustin Byfuglien setting the stage for David Legwands pass to Smith. Jets are now 1-1-1 on thee road, with three more games on this Central Division trip that continues in Dallas, Saturday (TSN 1290).dddddddddddd Jets are 4-5-2 overall on the season. Byfuglien played over 30 minutes in the game and had six shots on goal in a losing cause. The Predators are a very good face-off team, winning 66% of the draws. Matt Cullen led the way winning 15 of 16 from the faceoff circle. The Jets outshot the Predators 36-33, they also missed the net with another 12 attempts and had 24 blocked, six by Shea Weber. "We had a solid first ten minutes," commented Noel post-game. "Text book. But could not sustain it. Its good we came back and got a point but the test is still to be consistent for 60 minutes. We play in spurts. First five minutes of the third we struggled. Bad puck management, no support. We need to take the next step, were 11 games in. But we did some good things. Battled physically, got traffic to the net. We had a great north/south game going then wanted to play cute." Defenceman Mark Stuart was back in the lineup after missing two games due to injury and forward Eric Tangradi played after being a healthy scratch the last three games. Jets were still minus Jim Slater, Jacob Trouba and Chris Thorburn due to injury, while Adam Pardy and Patrice Cormier were healthy scratches. James Wright slipped in the middle on the fourth line and played well. Goaltender Carter Hutton has now stopped 72 of 75 shots in his two games against the Jets. Its back to back for the Jets this weekend as they are in Dallas Saturday and Colorado Sunday before closing out the trip in St. Louis Tuesday.
