Yankees manage just one hit in 4-0 loss to Rays

Charlie Morton has been worth every penny this season, but the 35-year-old put a stamp on a successful first regular season with Tampa Bay. In his 33rd start of the year, which extended a career high, Morton delivered six shutout innings to help the Rays sweep the two-game series against the Yankees with a 4-0 win on Wednesday at Tropicana Field. Five Rays pitchers held the Yanks to just one hit.

Through five innings, Morton held a dangerous Yankees lineup without a hit. In fact, the Yankees didn’t record a hard-hit ball — 95 mph or higher — off Morton until Luke Voit hit a 101.4 mph groundout to Willy Adames to end the fifth inning. The Yankees didn’t record a hit until DJ LeMahieu laced a two-out single to right in the sixth.
