Yankees' 7-game winning streak ends with 4-2 loss to Rays

NEW YORK (AP) - Corey Dickerson hit a two-run homer, Matt Andriese won for the first time since June and the Tampa Bay Rays slowed the New York Yankees' playoff charge by stopping their seven-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory Sunday.
 
Logan Forsythe and Brad Miller also went deep for the last-place Rays, who had lost three straight and six of seven. But they prevented a four-game sweep behind Andriese (7-7) and Chase Whitley, who tossed two innings of relief in his Tampa Bay debut after returning from Tommy John surgery.
 
Chase Headley homered and Brett Gardner had an RBI single among his three hits for the Yankees, who began the day three games behind first-place Boston in the AL East and one back of Baltimore for the league's second wild card.
